With less than 60 days left until Election Day, you're probably sick of hearing about "polls" – who's up or who's down, by how many points and what it means, etc.
Ugh. It's boring.
But, here's a new a poll that you might find interesting: it seems that most Americans think in a clash of fisticuffs, President Barack Obama would win out over Governor Mitt Romney.
The poll, conducted for Esquire magazine and Yahoo! News, surveyed a random selection of more than 1,000 American adults across the country via phone (both cellular and landline) from Sept. 7 through Sept. 10.
It found that, among the usual slight Obama lead, a majority of Americans (57%) believe that POTUS will win the election and would be willing to bet money on it. (Only 30% would put money on Mitt, while the rest wouldn't bet or have no opinion). And, when asked, 58% of those surveyed believe that if there were a fistfight between the two candidates, the President would totally kick Mitt's butt.
And, a startling 20% said they didn't have an opinion on the matter. (How do you not have an opinion on that scenario?!)
There's no word on just what type of match the pollsters purposed, so we don't know if it was either boxing, bare-knuckle or barroom brawl.
But, we think this might be a decent way to decide political disputes in the future -- and it should be looked into as a possible replacement to the woefully outdated Electoral College.
