Mitt Romney Viewed Favorably By Only 18% of Americans According To New Poll

Less than shocking numbers appeared after a poll was taken in regards to support of Mitt Romney.

Less than a fifth of Americans view Utah Republican, Mitt Romney favorably.

Senator Romney is viewed positively by only 18% of the American People, according to an ABC News & Wall Street Journal poll released on Sunday. This is a significant drop from his 2012 polling numbers, at an astonishing 43%, just prior to losing his presidential bid to Obama.

More from the Washington Examiner:

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!”
