Mitt Romney Has the Lowest Favorability Rating Of Any Presidential Nominee In Modern History — Including All Of the Eventual Losers

Have you ever looked at Mitt Romney on your television screen and thought to yourself, “My God, he looks like an older version of the preppy villain in every 1980′s teen comedy ever produced. Who even likes this guy?”? Well, according to a new paper published by the Pew Research Center, the answer to your question is: virtually no one.

A review of Pew Research Center and Gallup survey data from September finds that Mitt Romney has the lowest favorability rating of any presidential nominee in recent history. In fact, Mitt Romney is the only candidate over the past seven election cycles to be viewed more unfavorably than favorably — and that’s including all of the nominees who went on to lose the election. In fact, while the graph below only goes back to 1988, Andrew Romano over at The Daily Beast/Newsweek sifted through the data going all the way back to 1976 and still couldn’t find any nominee with lower favorability ratings than Romney.

Oh, and this is before the whole “47%” thing went public.
