New Poll Finds Only 18 Percent Of Americans Have A Favorable View Of Mitt Romney

Things have been pretty rough for Mitt Romney lately.

People do not like the way that he has treated Trump and it’s showing in his poll numbers.

They’re dismal.

Mitt Romney seen favorably by just 18% of Americans: Poll

Less than a fifth of Americans view Sen. Mitt Romney favorably.

The Utah Republican is looked at positively by just 18% of Americans, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Sunday. His favorability has dropped from 43% since October 2012, prior to losing his presidential bid to then-President Barack Obama.

Romney is viewed very positively by 2% of Americans, somewhat positively by 16%, neutrally by 37%, somewhat negatively by 19%, and very negatively by 19%, according to the poll.

Romney, 72, has served as Utah’s junior senator since January 2019 and has become one of President Trump’s chief Republican critics in Congress. In October, Trump escalated his feud with Romney, calling him a “pompous ass.” The president later called for Romney to be impeached.

“Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China pertained to corruption, not politics,” Trump tweeted on Oct. 5. “He is a pompous ‘ass’ who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!”

That’s kind of stunning, isn’t it?

This is just brutal. Watch:

It’s probably safe to assume Romney won’t be running for president again in the future.
