Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is significantly more popular with Democratic voters than Republicans, according to a new Gallup poll released Tuesday.
The poll that assessed overall support for Republicans in Congress, noted that Romney has maintained an overall favorability of 39% with Americans, a number that would be much lower if it weren’t for Democrats, 56% of whom like the senator.
Romney scores just a 23% approval rating with Republicans. Gallup notes that the senator’s favorability has fallen 19 points in the last year with GOP supporters but risen 22 points among Democrats.

Romney was the only Republican to vote in favor of convicting President Trump and removing him from office.
According to Gallup, “Results are based on telephone interviews conducted February 17-28, 2020 with a random sample of –1,020— adults, ages 18+, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. For results based on this sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.”
