Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is losing popularity among Americans, with just three months remaining to the November 6 elections, a new poll has showed.

The Washington Post-ABC News poll showed that 49% of voters have a negative view of Romney, which was up from 45% in May.

In contrast, 53% of voters said they had a favourable opinion of current US President Barack Obama, while 43% said they felt negatively about him.

By a margin of 53% to 40%, more key Independent voters see Obama favourably rather than unfavourably, while 50% of this group view Romney unfavourably, compared to 37% who consider him favourably.

Among supporters of his own Republican Party, 83% have a good feeling about Romney, but just 41% feel strongly favourable, while 61% of Democrats feel the same about Obama.

While, the Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll showed a tight race shaping up between the two in the states of Colorado, Virginia and Wisconsin.
