Mitt Romney measures his ... support from independents (Brian Snyder/Reuters)
 
Via Greg Sargent, check out these numbers for Mitt Romney among independents:
November:
Romney viewed somewhat or very negatively by 22% of independents
Romney led Obama by 13 points—47% to 34%.

Today:
Romney viewed somewhat or very negatively by 42% of independents
Romney trails Obama by 8 points—36% to 44%

Perhaps the Republican establishment is right when they say that Newt Gingrich would be an electoral disaster for Republicans. But with these kinds of trends, it's looking like Mitt Romney might not be all that much better.
