    In the new survey, 54% of Republicans said they hold a favorable opinion of Romney, while 67% said the same in January. Among all Americans, 34% described the candidate as likable, down from 41% last month.

    Meanwhile, Santorum's recent victories have boosted his standing among Republicans, 56% of whom had a good opinion of the former Pennsylvania senator, up from 49% in January.

    The survey was conducted Friday through Monday, the tail end of a big week for Santorum with three contest victories followed by a spike in fundraising and poll numbers.

    But among all Americans, Santorum's favorable rating has remained flat. Thirty-two percent held a good opinion in the new survey, while 31% said the same in January.

    Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich received positive reviews from roughly half of all Republicans.

    But those numbers declined when Americans of all political affiliations were surveyed. In that case, Paul came in at 42%, ahead of Romney and Santorum, and Gingrich's favorable rating fell to 25%.

    That leaves only one presidential candidate in the race with a national favorable rating above the 50% mark: President Barack Obama.

    Among all Americans, Obama received positive reviews from 53%, with the poll suggesting he may have grown more popular in recent months.

    I have NEVER in my 58 years been contacted to participate in a poll like this!! I don't KNOW anyone that has been polled. I'm sure there are some, but do they always call the same people??? :)

    Polls can be instructive or destructive. For the most part...the latter. Manipulation in motion for the mindless as Chrissy that runs his life from them.

    If there were no polls? Chrissy wouldn't know what to do next.

    Many people have this question:

    Frequently Asked Questions | Pew Research Center for the People and the Press

    If you have a telephone (or at least a listed telephone) your odds of being called in a national poll are about the same as anyone else's. Given how often such polls occur, few if any of the people you know should have been called. As to polling firms calling the same people over and over, I don't think that is a likely methodological error.

    There's no question that Romney is not where he hoped to be. He had good odds of becoming the de facto nominee by now. Instead, he's seeing his support within the Republican party erode rather than solidify. A drawn-out primary season has every chance of leaving Romney's support from the base substantially diminished.
