With the 2012 Presidential Election just around the corner, and every media outlet constantly eying the ever-shifting polls, GuySpy.com wanted to get their fingers on the pulse of their 500,000 plus registered members when it came to their opinions of the candidates.
The poll, which was presented to GuySpy’s members through their popular gay blog, posed two important questions: 1) Which candidate (if any) do you plan on voting for this election? and 2) Of the Presidential candidates and their running mates, with whom would you most like to share a casual encounter?
Regarding which candidate GuySpy’s members would most likely be voting for this election, the winner was Barack Obama with a dominating 75.5%. Mitt Romney came in a distant second with a limp 16.3%. Despite the fact they we are less than a month away from the election, 4.1% of those who took the poll were still undecided. The final 4% said that they would either not be voting or were planning to vote for another candidate.
In a startling upset compared to the results of the voting question, Barack Obama is not the candidate who GuySpy members most want to meet up with in a dark voting booth. While the current President did have a strong showing with 34.5% of the members saying they’d most want to spend a passion-filled night with him, it was Republican Running Mate Paul Ryan who raised the most eyebrows (among other things) with 49.1% of the vote. The rest of the field did not fare as well with 20% opting for none of the above. Romney came in third place with just under 11% of the vote. Meanwhile, Joe Biden was only able to garner 3.6% of the vote. 1.8% of the members took a more adventures route and suggested that they’d be up for all four candidates… at the same time.
