65% of Americans say Obama better suited to handle alien invasion than Romney

In the event that Bill Pullman isn't available, two-thirds of respondents to a new survey say that President Obama would be better suited to handle an alien invasion than presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

"We wanted the pulse on people's opinions," said Brad Dancer, senior vice president of research and digital media for National Geographic, who conducted the survey for their 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 be playing into their opinions on it."

Nearly 65 percent of respondents said Obama would be better suited to handle a theoretical alien invasion than Romney.

In fact, Obama trumped Romney across the board, winning a majority of support from women (68 percent); men (61 percent) and citizens aged 18 to 64 (68 percent).

Romney's strongest bracket was with senior citizens, where he split the vote with Obama at 50 percent each.

5. Zombie votes always tend to be under-represented in these polls

Some say it's because they almost never have land lines.

2. You know why I don't trust polls?

Because they can put out a poll like this and not have 100% of the respondents say "Are you fucking kidding me"?
