Low public ratings for Romney's speech

So says Gallup.

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.

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.
