By basically every criteria imaginable the American people just seem to think President Obama is a better person than Mitt Romney. Not only has polling found that Obama is significantly more likeable than Romney, but also people think Obama is more honest, caring and a stronger leader. From Gallup:
Romney’s numbers on honesty and trustworthiness are already bad and I suspect they will only get worse as the media has been basically forced to acknowledge how dishonest much of the Romney campaign is. The incredible number of lies and falsehoods in Paul Ryan VP acceptance speech last night seems to have been a tipping point where it has gotten too bad to ignore. Ryan’s almost shocking level of dishonesty last night is getting highlighted not only in traditional fact checking and left leaning sites, but also in multiple mainstream newspaper and online articles.
