Analysis: Mitt Romney withstands the attack deluge … for now Maybe being the presidential campaign’s symbol of capitalism isn’t so bad after all.

But he suffers from a real problem — the more people see of him, the less they seem to like him.
In Iowa, he won the Republican caucuses on Jan. 3 despite not growing his support at all in the four years since the 2008 campaign.
New Hampshire is Romney’s second home — people here know him as well as anybody — and yet Suffolk University’s tracking poll has shown his support slipping in each of the past four days he has campaigned here.
