OPINION: Why America doesn't like Mitt Romney

(CNN) - The latest CNN/ORC International Poll found that 48 percent of Americans view Mitt Romney unfavorably. CNN Contributor LZ Granderson says Mitt Romney's unpopularity stems from his sense of entitlement and disregard for others.

[0:23] "Romney's been unable to get much likability traction since announcing his first run at the White House five years ago. For a sex scandal-free politician, that's got to be a bit perplexing."

[2:20] "In his mind, the world is full of bus drivers and honor roll students and the two are independent of each other. What rubs so many people the wrong way is Romney's inability to see that society is interdependent."
