Which Barack Obama has got your vote?

As EW previously reported, there was a shift for commander-in-chief Saturday on Saturday Night Live as Jay Pharoah made his debut as President Obama with an introduction (“Who’d want his job?”) by former Obama Fred Armisen.

As many have remarked, Obama’s no Bill Clinton or Sarah Palin – he’s not the easiest guy to impersonate. But with a skilled impressionist in the cast, many wondered how long we would have to wait for Pharoah (whose Obama impression from his stand-up already had quite a few fans) to tackle SNL‘s buzziest role.

Check out a clip of both men below, and then tell us who you think did the better impression.
