A new CNN/ORC International poll released Monday shows Mitt Romney continuing to enjoy a steady improvement in his favorability rating.
According to the poll, 48 percent of Americans now view the Republican nominee in a positive light — a sharp jump since the CNN/ORC February survey, which showed Romney with a paltry 34 percent favorability rating. But with a favorability rating of 56 percent in the latest CNN/ORC poll, President Barack Obama remains more popular than Romney.
Romney has seen an ongoing bump in his favorability rating after surviving a bruising Republican nomination contest, during which the former Massachusetts governor's image took a relentless beating. The TPM Poll Average captures the rise in Romney's favorability rating over the last two months.
