Mayor Michael Bloomberg was overheard at a charity function a few days ago voicing his thoughts on the upcoming U.S. presidential election.


According to The New York Times, three people overheard Bloomberg saying that he thinks Mitt Romney would be better at running the country than President Barack Obama.


However, the Times also reported that Bloomberg said he could not support Romney, the likely Republican nominee, because he disagrees with him on so many social issues, including abortion and gun control.


Bloomberg has been courted by both Romney and Obama for an official endorsement, but said he would stay neutral, the Times reported.
