|Ladies, ignore the wedding ring. This man is sugar daddy material!
|A good-looking guy. But a sugar daddy? Not so much.
Oh, a mentor, so that's what they're calling it these days. Somebody ought to get back to Elliot Spitzer on this.
The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post and Vanity Fair magazine, by the way, have all reported stories about SeekingArrangement.com, which has a sister website called SeekingMillionaire.com.
Fact is, Romney is certainly a mega-millionaire. So you'd figure that he'd make a better sugar daddy than Obama, a simple Harvard-educated lawyer and bestselling author who managed for years on a humble state senator's salary, right?
Not so, say the SeekingArrangement poll results.
- 34.1% said they would prefer Obama as their sugar daddy
- 11.9% said they would prefer Romney as their sugar daddy
- 11.1% said they would be happy to have either Obama or Romney as their sugar daddy
Indeed, nearly half, or 43%, said they wouldn’t choose either Obama or Romney for a sugar daddy. But for those who do want a presidential-caliber rich guy in their lives, Obama was the clear winner by double-digit percentages over Romney. The ladies loved them some Obama, from New York to Ohio to Texas to California and even to Romney's home state of Massachusetts, where the vote went 32.8% toward Obama versus only 20.2% for Romney.
“According to our survey, most women say they chose Obama because he is more trustworthy, charismatic and sexy," says Wade, an MBA from MIT. "Obama is funny and is known to be a good dancer. Unfortunately, Romney is still viewed by many as the ‘vanilla’ candidate."
Here's a tip for the Romney campaign: get your candidate to take some dancing lessons.
