61 Percent of Small Business Owners Favor Mitt Romney for President

A poll reveals a majority small business owners are unhappy with President Obama

It appears Mitt Romney‘s business background is shoring up a wave of support from small business owners. According to a study conducted by Manta, 61 percent of small business owners say they plan to vote for Romney, while only 26 percent said they will vote for President Barack Obama.

These numbers suggests that small business owners consider Romney’s business experience as the owner of the financial firm Bain Capital, more equipped to meet their needs as business owners. The Manta survey also reveals that small business owners do not have much faith in the Democratic Party as more than half (54 percent) say they think the Republican Party is the biggest supporter of small businesses. Only 19 percent, a 7 percent decrease, believe the same for the Democratic Party.

The survey findings are part of a series of Manta Political Tracking Polls that offer an ongoing assessment of small business owners’ opinions on candidates and hot topics related to the upcoming presidential election. Manta’s latest survey polled more than 1,900 small business owners.
