In case you want another reason why not to run a “Mr. Nice Guy” campaign, take a look at this Politico/GW-Battleground poll.  Among the many data points included in the poll, which shows the race virtually tied between Obama and Romney, is this:

Despite strong attacks from both campaigns, including the Obama team’s relentless focus on Romney’s refusal to release years worth of tax returns and his record at Bain Capital, voters see Obama as running a more positive campaign than Romney by an 11-point margin.
