A survey by Economist/YouGov suggests a major problem for Mitt Romney as he moves into the general election phase of his campaign: that he out of touch and does not care about people. The poll notes: "Obama does not really have that problem: 48% say Obama cares about people like them, 52% say he does not. That's not a rip-roarin' populist image, but it certainly surpasses Romney's scores: 38% say Romney cares about people like them, 63% he does not."
