Romney's RNC Speech Fails to Impress Lowest Rating Since 1996

Despite the media's desire to pretend that the Romney camp is on the same level as the Obama camp, this poll says Americans can detect BS when they see it. Mitt's problem is he's in the GOP bubble. Mitt exists in bubbles. He's still talking to the extreme right of the republican party and he doesn't seem to realize it. He doesn't know Obama. He doesn't know how people feel about Obama. He's insulated.

Mitt Romney's speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa last week received a lower score than any presidential candidate's convention speech since the poll starting asking the question in 1996, according to the polling firm Gallup.

Only 38 percent of respondents said his speech was excellent or good, compared to 47 percent who thought 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain's speech was excellent or good. McCain's acceptance speech received the next lowest approval ratings in Gallup's polling. Ten percent of respondents also said Romney's speech was terrible, twice the percentage who thought McCain's speech, which received the second highest negative rating, was terrible. CBS
No bounce for Romney in Florida.
