It might be hard for the Arkansas diehard Obama haters to believe, but when you look at the country as a whole, the president is viewed more favorably than Republican challenger Mitt Romney and Romney's numbers are drifting downward.
According to the ABC News/Washington Post survey, 49% of Americans have an unfavorable view of the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, while 40% see him in a favorable light.
Cold, clueless, evasive and a flip-flopper. Not a formula for high poll numbers.
