Romney's Popularity Stays Very Low

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds Mitt Romney is laboring under the lowest personal popularity ratings for a presidential nominee in midsummer election-year polls back to 1984.

Just 40% of Americans overall view Romney favorably, 49% unfavorably - leaving him underwater, at least numerically, in 10 straight polls this year. A new high of 30% now see him "strongly" unfavorably, nearly double his strongly favorable score.

"Romney's inability to gain on Obama since then may be a sign that his image has been damaged by summer stumbles, including new attention on his tax returns and an overseas trip that included several gaffes."
