Gallup Poll: Obama more likable than Romney

by David Jackson, USA TODAY  |  published on June 26, 2012

Americans find both President Obama and Republican opponent Mitt Romney likable — Obama more so, reports the Gallup Poll.

Presented with a list of eight personal characteristics that could describe the candidates, 81% of respondents said Obama “is likable;” 64% said the same of Romney.

Likability topped the list of attributes for both candidates.

“Overall,” the Gallup Poll added, “half of Americans believe both candidates are likable, with 28% ascribing this trait only to Obama and 12% only to Romney. Just 4% consider neither candidate likable.”

The eighth and lowest-rated attribute for both candidates: “Has a clear plan for solving the country’s problems.”
