RealClearPolitics - Obama & Romney: Favorable/Unfavorable With Romney & Obama being so close in ideology I would think Mitt would be doing better in popularity. Man oh man Obama will have a field day with ole Romney... the battle between the progressive candidates of the GOP/DNC!!! It looks like Obamster is on his way to a 2nd term! Even if Obama losses we get "Obama Lite" with Romney!!!
