President Obama Better Suited to Handle Alien Invasion Than Mitt Romney, Survey Finds

by at . Comments

A majority respondents to a new survey say President Barack Obama is better suited to handle an alien invasion than GOP nominee-in-waiting Mitt Romney.

Yes, someone actually polled this.

"We wanted the pulse on people's opinions," said Brad Dancer of National Geographic, who conducted the survey for the new series "Chasing UFOs."

"We wanted to get a sense of how Americans view UFOs, what people believe and how mainstream pop culture may or may not play into their opinions."

Obama vs. Romney

For whatever reason, nearly 65 percent of respondents said Obama would be better suited to handle a theoretical alien invasion than Romney.

Obama trumped Romney across the board, winning broad support from women (68 percent), men (61 percent) and those aged 18-64 (68 percent).

During a May visit to the White House by the actor Will Smith and his family, Obama was quizzed by Smith's 13-year-old son, Jaden, about aliens.

"OK, I can neither confirm or deny the existence of extraterrestrials," Obama said from the White House Situation Room, according to Will.

"But I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting, and if there would have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room."

No idea how Obama would poll against some top movie presidents.

Who would you vote for if the election were today?
