In a recent poll conducted by Match.com and Happen Magazine, Americans responded overwhelmingly that when it comes to kissing, Obama is the right man for the job. The poll, which focused on political lip service of a more intimate kind, resulted in 77% of Americans responding that they believe Barack Obama would be a better kisser than John McCain*.
"While the majority of our member base considers themselves 'middle of the road,' it appears that America is leaning to the left with their lips," said Darcy Cameron, senior director of marketing and advertising for Match.com.
This Match.com poll was conducted online and fielded 1,433 total responses.
*Neither Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain nor any babies were polled as part of this survey.
