The public’s view of Mitt Romney has changed little since the 2012 presidential election, according to a new Gallup poll.

Forty-seven percent of people in the United States viewed Romney favorably, according to the poll released Monday. Just after the election, 50 percent viewed him favorably.

During his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, Romney’s favorability rating never exceeded 50 percent, Gallup says.

Gallup began polling the public on Romney’s favorability in 2006, when he served as governor of Massachusetts. 

The results come from a poll conducted from Feb. 6-9 that comes on the heels of the release of the Netflix documentary, “Mitt." 

In 2012, Obama won with 332 electoral votes, while Romney received 206. Romney has previously said he doesn’t intend to run for the president again in 2016.
