Poll: Americans’ View Of Romney Holds Steady

Romney has ruled out running again in 2016.

RomneyAmericans’ view of Mitt Romney has changed little since the 2012 election, according to a new Gallup poll.

Immediately after the election well over a year ago, 50 percent said that they viewed Romney favorably while 45 percent said that they viewed him negatively. Now, 47 percent view him in a positive light while 43 percent view him in a negative one.

Romney had been largely silent following his unsuccessful White House bid, but has reemerged in the public eye in surrounding months to promote the Netflix documentary “Mitt,” which portrays a behind the scenes look at the Romney family during the campaign year.

Romney has ruled out running again in 2016.

The poll was conducted among 1,023 respondents between February 6th and 9th.
