The New Republic: Nobody Like Mitt, The Presidential Election is a Popularity Contest & Thats OK

Generally I'm not a fan of Popularity Contests when it comes to voting for our Public Officials. You want the most qualified person to have the job and in the Presidential Election, that would be President Obama. But thats not why the President is leading or is going to win, Americans simply like him more then Mitt Romney. But with everything at stake if President Obama is reelected because of his popularity, I'll make this acception.
