What your candidate reveals about your sex life
The survey of 900 adults features plenty of evidence that Democrats are more fun in bed than Republicans, but I was most interested in the breakdown as it relates to presidential candidates. Among the findings:
-- 25% of Obama supporters say the sexiest part of the female body is the butt, compared to 14% of Giuliani's and 11% of Clinton's supporters.
-- 70% of married Hillary backers say they would probably or definitely not break their vows, compared to 56 percent of supporters for the thrice-married Giuliani.
-- 14% of Thompson supporters and 12% of Obama supporters claim to have sex "almost every day" compared to 5% of Giuliani and Clinton voters.
And consider the implications of this data table, which asks respondents to identify which presidential candidate is most likely to talk dirty in bed:
None of them - 37.0%
Hillary Clinton - 19.8%
Rudy Giuliani - 16.5%
Barack Obama - 7.6%
Fred Thompson - 4.4%
John Edwards - 4.0%
Mitt Romney - 2.9%
John McCain - 2.4%
Dennis Kucinich - 1.7%
Joe Biden - 1.0%
Mike Huckabee - 1.0%
Chris Dodd - 0.9%
Ron Paul - 0.5%
Bill Richardson - 0.3%
The mind boggles at what some of these candidates would actually sound like if they tried to talk dirty (Giuliani exploring the erotic possibilities of 9/11 ... Barack Obama talking about "the audacity of that badonkadonk" ... Kucinich saying, "Pick me up! Pick me up!"). Please add your own ideas in the comment section of this post; the one that makes the newsroom laugh hardest will get a suitably sexy prize sent to us by one of our classy back-of-the-book advertisers.
