Most are Negative About Romney's 47% Remark

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds 54% of Americans have unfavorable views of Mitt Romney's comments -- caught on film at a fundraiser -- regarding the "47 percent" of people who pay not federal income taxes and simply would not vote for him. Just 32% saw them favorable.

In addtiion, 61% of all Americans "express negative views of how Romney is running his campaign. That number is up significantly from July -- the near-certain result of the much-publicized comments by Romney."

Meanwhile, Nate Silver says President Obama's odds of winning the election, according to his forecast model, have increased by 7% -- 80% chance of winning the Electoral College from 73% -- since the hidden camera video of Romney making his comments came out.
