As we noted yesterday, the latest Pew Research survey found that Mitt Romney’s crass attack on President Obama after the Libyan embassy killings had done Romney serious damage. Now we have two more new polls from Monmouth University and Reuters/Ipsos with similar results: Romney’s Libya Comments Landed With a Thud: Reuters/Ipsos Poll.
(Reuters) - Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was the loser in a political fight over U.S. reaction to attacks last week on American diplomatic compounds in Libya and Egypt, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll on Tuesday.
Four in 10 U.S. voters felt less favorably toward Romney after hearing about his criticism of President Barack Obama’s handling of the attacks in which the U.S. ambassador to Libya was killed.
Only 26 percent of the registered voters polled felt worse about Obama after hearing about the Democrat’s comments about the violence in the Middle East, the survey said.
