Mitt Romney’s standing among very conservative Americans is plummeting. The former Massachusetts governor is now viewed favorably by just 38 percent, down 16 points from just two weeks ago, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll showed.

Two weeks ago, 52 percent had a favorable view of Romney. The numbers for former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum have stayed stable over the last two polling periods, with 60 percent now having a favorable view compared with 61 percent two weeks ago.

Among conservative Republicans and independents, Romney’s favorability drop shows among men and women and those with and without college degrees. Romney’s standing has taken a hit among those conservative Republicans and independents with household incomes under $50,000. The poll found that just 37 percent had a favorable view of Romney compared to 53 percent for Santorum.

President Barack Obama’s favorability rating is at 51 percent among Americans; among independents 49 percent view him favorably compared with 32 percent for Santorum and 29 percent for Romney.

The poll, conducted Feb. 22 to 26, queried 1,011 adults.
