A new Esquire/Yahoo poll recently found 57 percent of Americans think Obama would win if the presidential election came down to a fist fight. 21 percent think Romney would win.

This isn’t the first time a national telephone poll has asked a wacky, yet revealing, question. Back in June, the National Geographic found that 65 percent of Americans think President Obama would be better suited than Mitt Romney to handle an alien invasion.

Levity aside, these numbers correlate with more substantive questions, like who would better handle international affairs.
