Peter Grier writes for The Christian Science Monitor about Mitt Romney's rise in favorability ratings:
"Mitt Romney's reputation with US voters appears to be on the rise. That's the implication of a new CNN poll, anyway, which shows that Mr. Romney's favorable rating has jumped from 34 percent in February to 48 percent today.
"Forty two percent of respondents to the CNN/ORC International survey say they have an unfavorable view of the presumptive GOP nominee. And President Obama still leads Romney in this particular rating race — his favorability number is 56 percent.
"But voters' views of Romney are becoming more positive at a time when the Obama campaign is doing its best to define him in a negative light. Attacks on Romney's record at Bain Capital filled the political blogosphere there for a few weeks. Now the Obama camp is hitting Romney's record at Massachusetts governor. What's going on?"
