Barack Obama Is More Popular Than Sex!

That's right you sexy things, you.

A national poll suggests that President-elect Barack Obama is more popular than ever despite recent speed bumps on the road to his inauguration.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Sunday also indicates that most Americans see Obama's inauguration as a chance for the nation to come together.

Eighty-four percent of those surveyed say they approve of how Obama is handling the presidential transition. That's up 2 points from the middle of December and up 5 points from the beginning of December.

Damn. 84 percent.

Now check this out, a survey of Americans' attitudes towards sex:

Men Women
Think about sex every day70% 34%
Enjoy sex a "great deal"83% 59%
So the percentage of Americans who approve of Barack Obama's performance is higher than the percentage of American men who enjoy their own performance!


Of course, this survey was taken in 2004, when Bush was president, when there was no point in continuing to populate the world, so maybe sex is now actually more popular than Obama. We'll have to just wait and see.

You've got a lot riding on this, Mr. President-Elect.
