Romney’s Response Ad, More Good Romney Poll Numbers
Mitt Romney’s response to Barack Obama’s negative ad.
I like it and hope Romney continues to do this through the campaign. One benefit of Newt Gingrich’s anti-capitalism campaign against Romney is it gave the Romney campaign some practice….
USA Today and Gallup have out a new poll and the headline touts that Americans are more optimistic about the economy. But buried in the article is this:
Since becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, Romney’s favorable-unfavorable rating has jumped to 50%-41%, his best ever and in the same neighborhood as Obama’s 52%-46% standing. The former Massachusetts governor gets stronger ratings than the president when it comes to handling the economy, the issue likely to drive the campaign.
In the poll, 55% say the economy would get better over the next four years if Romney was elected, compared with 46% who say it would improve if Obama was re-elected. Twenty-seven percent say the economy would get worse in a Romney first term, compared with 37% who say that of an Obama second term.
Also from this new USAT/Gallup poll is the congressional ballot.

I did not see any head-to-head numbers for Romney/Obama yet. This poll was done May 10-13.
