This just in: America's porn industry backs President Obama over challenger Mitt Romney by a 68 percent to 13 percent margin, according to the industry's top social network.
Here is the release from XBIZ:
Poll: Adult Industry Backs Obama, Romney Limps
LOS ANGELES -- The adult entertainment industry overwhelmingly favors re-electing Barack Obama to a second term as president, according to the results of a new industry poll conducted by media organization XBIZ.
In spite of being in an era of declining industry revenues due to the glut of free content available online and rampant piracy, the majority of adult insiders side with the Democratic incumbent Obama over the Republican candidate Mitt Romney as the 2012 presidential election on Nov. 6 inches closer. The results are based on responses from members of XBIZ.net, the adult entertainment industry's top social network.
XBIZ asked industry members: "Which candidate would you like elected U.S. president?"
Of the 339 respondents, 68% say Obama, while only 13% favor Romney. Another 14% would like to see "someone else" in the White House, while 5% responded "I don't care."
The results of the poll did not come as a shock to at least two prominent industry kingpins.
Hustler founder Larry Flynt in September took out full-page ads in the Washington Post and USA Today offering $1 million in cash for proof of Romney's tax returns and/or details of his offshore assets, bank accounts and business partnerships. Romney in late September did release his 2011 tax return and a brief summary of his returns from the previous 20 years. Flynt told XBIZ simply that he was "not surprised" by Obama's favorite status in the industry.
Vivid Entertainment CEO Steven Hirsch agreed.
"The results aren't really surprising because most people involved with the adult industry have a liberal view of government and how it should work," Hirsch said. "Social issues are more important than fiscal issues and they will support a candidate who shares their beliefs."
Evil Angel founder John Stagliano, who overcame a federal obscenity prosecution that generated nationwide attention in 2010, pointed to his support of another presidential hopeful.
"The only candidate who protects our right to do business is the Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson," Stagliano told XBIZ, referring to the former governor of New Mexico who has garnered the most support of any of the third-party candidates heading into this election. "He was the only person dealing with the real problems we have, like war, the debt, censorship and inefficient government."
Aside from economic considerations affecting voters' decisions in November, the issue of federal obscenity prosecutions figures to be a major factor for adult film producers. According to the notorious pro-censorship organization Morality in Media, Mitt Romney earlier this year, along with other Republican candidates at the time, offered assurances that if elected, they would direct the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute porn producers for obscenity violations.
Whatever the outcome of the election, the industry will do what it has for the past 40 years -- adapt and survive -- and meet the consumer demand for adult entertainment regardless of the weight of political pressure.
Apparently, this demographic likes to get screwed!
I’m sure they are all willing to give him a Clap.
This is the first poll they’ve responded to that didn’t need to be fluffed first...
What the ‘pornsters’ are doing on screen, zero is doing to the USA.
i’m honostly (not sarcastically) shocked.
ron jeremy, marey carey and IIRC jenna jameson all are registered republicans.
whether or not you agree with it, the porn industry espouses just about every one of the bill of rights in some way or another.
Maybe he can get work as a fluffer after January.

“Porn Stars for a Mormon President” might be America’s smallest interest group...
3 women in porn post on a fitness site I visit and they are very conservative.
Obambi’s winning all the top shelf groups: porno, transgenders, homos, ghetto free phone types, drug addled “professors” Hollyweirders, union thugs, athiests, Code Stinkers, felons, bums, radical Muslims, Chavez, Putin et all
Clearly the best and the brightest. Way to go, certainly something to be proud of, Soetero
I always knew his supporters were a bunch of boobs!! :-)~
Jenna Jameson is a Romney supporter...so we do have one porn actress on our side.
That's the fastest way to turn someone into a conservative (at least on economic issues). There are exceptions, but most of the wealthy liberals are "old money", meaning that they inherited it and they never learned what it really means to work for a living.
this thread sucks...
Oops...sorry. I meant this thread blows.
i really am shocked... i had imagined them to be more business minded... i don’t know why i thought that, but i did...
I don’t think I am unhappy that the results aren’t the other way around. Who wants their approval? Great to remind the Libs, though. They are so concerned and crying about protecting the children from the mean man who they believe wants to “kill Big Bird.” While they never protest the perverted porn peddlers who are more than threat to their chlds’ future and well-being, and quite happy to be counted Obama supporters.
