Patch's Poll: Who is More Likable, Obama or Romney?

Nationally, voters choose Obama by a wide margin.

President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are in a dead heat in the latest ABC/Washington post poll.

According to the poll, with just four months until the election, 47 percent said they prefer Obama and 47 percent said they prefer Romney.

Meanwhile, Ronney is actually faring better in certain areas compared to Obama. The poll notes that registered voters trust Romney over Obama in handling the economy, 44-49 percent.

Meanwhile, 47 percent approve of the job Obama is doing now versus 49 percent who disapprove.

But, as ABC asks, why is the race still tied if Romney is pulling ahead in these economy polls?

When voters were polled “which candidate is more friendly and likeable,” 63 percent said Obama and 27 percent said Romney.

“It seems many voters just don’t like Mitt Romney,” the network said.

In the likability category, do you prefer Obama or Romney? Take our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.

No, I was born right here in the good old U.S. of A. But I have relatives in Lithuania who suffered immeasurably during the Soviet occupation. Tens of thousands of Lithuanians were deported to Siberia, mostly between 1940 and 1945. Estimates place the number at 130,000, 70% of which were children. Of these 30,000 died and another 50,000 never returned to their homeland. And Lithuanian lost an estimated 780,000 people during the war, or about 25% of her population. People who have lived under Eastern European totalitarian regimes, such as former Senate candidate Peter Lumaj, can speak with remarkable clarity about life under socialism and their appreciation for the blessings we enjoy in this country. One book I would recommend is Balint Vazsonyi's "America's 30 Years War: Who Is Winning?" Vazsonyi, the late political scientist and concert pianist, grew up in Hungary and witnessed brutality under both the Nazis and the Soviets, before escaping to the West at the time of the Hungarian Uprising in 1956. He describes communism and fascism as two sides of the same ideological coin. Both elevated the state over the individual, aimed to establish a utopian society, and ruthlessly suppressed all dissent.

I too am descended from Lithuanian folk. Only my great great grand father left in 1887 to flee the Russian conscription which was certain death. He took the underground railroad (much like America's slave road) to Hamburg and when he arrived in Hamburg he purchased a fur hat which was passed down from father to son and I now wear it. All countries have had this history in one form or another. We are humans who adore killing and subjugating wether it is political or, even more insidious, the horrific myth of G-D. What I remember most of the family discussions in the 50's after my father was severely wounded was how we as a c country must pull TOGETHER to advance as a society and not a pack of individuals.. We are now a pack of individuals long ago forgetting our/ your "founding fathers" motto for our country. E PLURIBUS UNUM. took just a tiny communist scare to change our motto so thoughtfully penned by those very same men who penned the Constitution! "In G-D we trust" is a 1950's fear reaction... How do we as a country get back to the founding fathers intended motto and restore E PLURIBUS UNUM??
