Important Poll: Obama Would Beat Romney in a Fistfight or Something

Geez, I hope so. He’s 15 years younger. Then again, he’s a mom jeans-wearing sissy boy and Mitt looks a bit more rugged.

Whatever the case, I believe we’ve reached rock bottom with these stupid polls.

If a fistfight could settle the presidential election, more people think President Obama would win than Mitt Romney, according to a new poll released Thursday.

When likely voters were asked “just for fun,” which candidate would win in a fistfight, 58 percent said Obama to 22 percent for Romney. Twenty percent had no opinion.

Esquire Magazine and Yahoo! News commissioned the survey through Langer Research Associates. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. Slightly more Democrats were polled, according to the crosstabs.

Of course. We couldn’t allow a balanced sample to ever slip through.

You know who can probably kick Obama’s ass?

    You missed one heavyweight media outlet for that poll. I’m pretty sure that Tigerbeat was involved. That’s what brought the gravitas.

    Romney losing a fight with Barky? Hardly. Romney had a few older brothers, and boys being boys will fight, especially brothers amongst themselves. As witness to many brother on brother fights, they can get vicious. Never heard of Barky ever being in a fight. Since Barky throws a baseball worse than most girls, doubt he knows how to throw a punch. Barky would be “Glass Joe”, throw one punch to his chin, and he’d been down for the count. He ain’t got game.
