The majority of Americans would pick to spend their vacation with President Obama over Mitt Romney, found a survey by Hotwire.com. 60 percent of U.S. adults picked Obama as the preferred travel buddy.

Given the opportunity to spend any holiday with Obama or Romney, Americans chose Thanksgiving.

The two candidates for this year’s election have different opinions on the perfect vacation spot. Mitt Romney frequents Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire where the biggest attraction is trolley cars and rowboats. The first family’s favorite destinations include Martha’s Vineyard, Santa Barbara, and Hawaii.
