Mitt Romney: Just slightly more popular than the war in Afghanistan!

Romney is only slightly more popular than war in Afghanistan. Steve Benen notes that, unsurprisingly, disliked candidates usually lose:

It’s tempting to think every major-party frontrunner emerges from a primary process with weakened favorability numbers — intra-party contests are often bruising — but that’s just not the case. Four years ago, Obama became better liked as voters got to know him, but this year, Romney isn’t just disliked, he’s also more disliked at this point in the process than any candidate in nearly three decades.
