Ipsos says the Bain attacks are working. Maybe that recent dip in favorability reflects that. But his unfavorables have dipped as well. The Ipsos sample of independents is also too small to be very confident about. I'm struck by the modest nature of Romney's favorability decline, given the punch of the attacks. The economic doldrums are insulating him from normal political gravity.
