Mitt Romney is ahead of President Obama in at least one tight race — the competition to see which candidate has the better digs.
The realty website TopTenRealEstateDeals.com is putting the abodes of the former Massachusetts governor and the commander in chief in a head-to-head (or in this case, house-to-house) match-up to see which voters like best.
The real estate showdown pits Obama’s Georgian revival home in Chicago, which he purchased in 2005 for $1.65 million, against Romney’s New Hampshire lake house, bought in 1997 for $3 million.
According to a news release from the website, while Obama took an early lead among those polled, with 56 percent of voters selecting his Windy City residence, Romney now has the lead — 53 percent to Obama’s 47.
While voting is still open, the website is keeping it diplomatic in regard to both candidates’ pricey dwellings, writing, “We don’t know who is right and who is wrong, but we do know one thing for certain. The president and Mr. Romney both own beautiful homes.”
