This just in to the Tatler. President Barack Obama is favored by 68% to 13% by American smut peddlers.

No comment yet from the Obama campaign to the first bit of good news the president has had from polls since his disastrous debate performance last week.

The Washington Examiner has posted a press release from the adult industry social media site XBIZ giving the president the good news:

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.”

Maybe Johnson will ask Stagliano to cut a commercial for him.
