It turns out that National Geographic took a survey and “Two-Thirds of Americans Think Barack Obama Is Better Suited to Handle an Alien Invasion Than Mitt Romney”. Check out a brief synopsis right here: http://spaceref.com/news/viewpr.html?pid=37603?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=socialmedia&utm_campaign=twitterclickthru. I’m not sure which is more telling; the idea that National Geographic came up with the poll in the first place (for a new TV show) or that the demographic for the TV show can actually vote in a presidential election.
According to Space Ref’s article and ultimately National Geographic’s statistics, “In regards to national security, nearly two-thirds (65%) of Americans think Barack Obama would be better suited than fellow presidential candidate Mitt Romney to handle an alien invasion. In fact, more than two in three (68%) women say that Obama would be more adept at dealing with an alien invasion than Romney, vs. 61 percent of men. And more younger citizens, ages 18 to 64 years, than those aged 65+ (68% vs. 50%) think Romney would not be as well-suited as Obama to handle an alien invasion.”
Far be it from me, Gentle Reader, your humble servant, to tell you how to vote but it looks like when the chips are down President Obama is the MAN. Our President took out Osama Bin Laden. That’s a fact. Now I ask you, what are marauding alien hoards next to that?
In an unrelated survey, 78% of those polled thought Romney was better fit to be a greeter at Wal-Mart than handling an Alien Invasion as Commander-In-Chief.
Not that I wish to influence how you vote in any way.
