As the election grows closer, the political rhetoric can be increasingly hard to swallow.
So how about some food with your politics?
A new nationwide survey of 2,094 people reveals which presidential candidate Americans would most like to have a hamburger with. The survey was recently conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Smashburger.
The survey found the following:
So who would you like to grab a burger with?
- Nearly 3 in 5, or 59 percent, of U.S. adults would most like to eat a hamburger with President Barack Obama.
- Two in five, or 41 percent, want to grab a burger with Governor Mitt Romney.
