As a rebuke to our attempt to compile a comprehensive ranking of the strangest questions asked by pollsters, Esquire and Yahoo! teamed up to ask whether Barack Obama can beat Mitt Romney — literally, not Joe Biden literally.
When asked, "Just for fun, who do you think would win if it came to a fistfight, (Obama) or (Romney)," 58% of respondents said Obama, 22% said Romney, and 20% expressed no opinion.
Bravo, Yahoo! We need more questions like this…
* Who would win a duel, Obama or Romney? (Romney, but only with Clint Eastwood's help)
* Who would win a game of Monopoly? (Romney, who will never land on income tax)
* Who would be more likely to Win America's Got Talent? (The Obama in Clint Eastwood's chair; invisibility is a rare skill)
Also, Obama is leading Romney among likely voters nationwide, 50% to 46%.
