Mitt Romney‘s popularity is starting to rebound as the Republican primaries subside, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Tuesday.

The survey showed 44% give Mr. Romney a favorable rating, up ten points since February. Mr. Romney’s unfavorable rating fell eleven points, from 54% to 43%, over the same period.

The poll showed 53% of those surveyed say they plan to give Mr. Romney a second look once the primaries are over, while 45% say they know enough about the former Massachusetts governor to decide whether he would be a good president.

The same poll shows that President Barack Obama’s favorability rating is 56%, and the approval rating of his performance in office is 49%.
