Technology professionals believe President Barack Obama will pay more attention to their needs than Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to a new survey from, a job search site for technology professionals.

Approximately 45 percent of the 2,000 respondents said Obama would best fit their needs while Romney received 37 percent. Other candidates made up the remaining 18 percent with Gary Johnston receiving the most of any one candidate at five percent.


Obama’s total, though, is down from 2008 when 63 percent of respondents in the same survey picked Obama over then-Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
