2320080622190001iStock_000004432877XSmall Forget President of the People -- Barack Obama is the President of the Dogs. In a new survey from Public Policy Polling (PPP) on who would make a better president for pups, Obama beat Romney 37 percent to 21 percent. The rest of were undecided.
To the question "Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Barack Obama's treatment of dogs?" 44 percent said favorable and 14 percent said unfavorable.
For Romney, it was 20 percent favorable, and 29 percent unfavorable.
Even the Obama camp has loosely addressed Romney's ongoing dog-on-the-roof scandal. Back in January, campaign adviser David Axelrod tweeted a picture of Obama with his Portuguese water dog, Bo, inside his presidential limo with the caption: "How loving owners transport their dogs."
One scary finding in the poll: seven percent of the public say that the dog-on-car-roof story makes them more likely to vote for Romney, and a shocking 14 percent say this is a "humane" way to transport a dog. (It's not.) Check out WebVet's tips on how to safely travel with your pet.
