Romney Gets a Bounce

SUSA has released the latest one of their 50 state Governor approval rating polls, and Mitt Romney clocks in at number 33, with 51% of the respondents approving of the job the Governor is doing and 46% disapproving. Romney seems to have made slight gains among conservatives, moderates and Democrats. Perhaps Romney is experiencing a bounce from the opening of Camp Edwards to hurricane Katrina evacuees. It could also be that Romney was experiencing an anti-bounce last month, after his call for the repeal of Roe v Wade in the Globe. It may just be that voters have forgotten or forgiven the governor for his shift to the right.
