I didn't like it. No fire, no direction, vague "I will create jobs" talk. Poll-tested formulas often don't go down well in the polls.
Romney's acceptance speech this year scored low by comparison to previous convention speeches going back to 1996. Thirty-eight percent of Americans rated the speech as excellent or good, while 16% rated it as poor or terrible. The 38% who rated the speech as excellent or good is the lowest rating of any of the eight speeches Gallup has tested since Bob Dole's GOP acceptance speech in 1996.

Low public ratings for Romney's speech
So says Gallup.
