The American people can be pretty tough to please, as reactions to the presidential debates have shown. But now, presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney go up against their toughest critics yet: the 'X Factor' judges. A new viral video asks, how would Obama and Romney fare if pit against each other as competitors on one of TV's biggest talent competitions?

The hilarious video, posted on 'The X Factor USA''s YouTube channel yesterday, mashes up clips from the final presidential debate with snippets from the reality TV show - -and the result is one of the funniest debate spoofs yet. From Britney Spears' comical reaction to Romney ("Is he serious? Is he serious??") to Simon's harsh critique of Obama ("I won't remember you in 15 minutes"), the candidates' attempts to impress the judges are, well, less than successful.

Watch the video above, and tell us: Which presidential candidate do you think has the "X Factor"?
