Newport and Carroll: Post-Ames, Romney’s unfavorables higher than ever

“While Romney’s favorable rating is the same as it was earlier this month, his unfavorable rating has increased and is now at its highest point to date (35%),” write the estimable team of Frank Newport and Joseph Carroll in a galluppoll.com report aptly titled GOP Update: McCain Gains While Romney Fades

Romney’s ratings had improved following his win in the Iowa straw poll in August, after which 33% rated him positively and 24% negatively. Since then, his ratings have quickly deteriorated. Romney now has a net negative image in the eyes of Americans (27% favorable, 35% unfavorable), as was the case in several polls this summermore [emphasis ours]

This has not gone unnoticed at Team Romney’s tony waterfront headquarters:
