After a National Geographic Channel poll revealed that 65% of Americans believe that Barack Obama would be better suited to handle and alien invasion than Mitt Romney, we were curious hear what SodaHeads had to say about the issue.

When analyzing National Geographic’s results, Erik Hayden of TIME NewsFeed was quick to point out that both candidates are well-versed in science fiction.

“Romney . . . enjoyed Star Trek on TV (though reportedly doesn’t consider himself a Trekkie), likes Star Wars, is a fan of Battlefield Earth (the book, if you please) and says Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game is one of his favorites, according to a Politico profile earlier this year.”



He added, “Obama is no sci-fi slouch either, having given nods to both Star Wars and Star Trek while in office. Well-versed in the ways of the Force, he’s been spotted on the White House lawn jousting with a Jedi lightsaber. He’s also flashed Star Trek’s Vulcan salute in the Oval Office when he posed for a photo with the show’s Nichelle Nichols earlier this year.”

Hayden also pointed out that this is one time when Obama’s analytical Spock-like demeanor—something he’s tried to downplay in the past—may actually be working for him.

So what do you think SodaHeads? Which presidential candidate is better suited to handle an alien invasion?

    Seeing as how Obama is the advance scout for an alien invasion I figure it would be better to have some one in charge that does NOT relate to them ! Personally I think the best man for President in the event of an alien invasion would be Clint Eastwood !! MAKE MY DAY !!

    P.S. I note from the SodaHead map that most of the votes for Obama came from outside the U.S. Most in the U.S. who will be voting in November chose Romney, as they rightly should have done.

    This is extremely serious tncdel. A space alien invasion will affect the whole planet. We'll need all the global support we can get....

    You didn't actually read the poll, did you.

    First off numbers USA is damned near as biased as faux news. Second the idea of deportation has FAILED miserably. I am NOT advocating doing nothing but if this near depression has proven anything to us its the fact that if no jobs are available they dont come. Arrests for them is WAY down. That tells us that we need to go after the employers. I am a business owner and a member of E-Verify. I use it and more people need to. One thing the shrub did right was suggest a guest worker program. Right NOW the fields are not getting picked so watch those veggie prices skyrocket.

    You didn't give an alternate answer but I don't think either, although I do think that we might be better off with the Aliens. lol

    There is a reason Obama likes illegal aliens so much. He can relate:

    If aliens showed up under a Romney administration I'd just assume he sold off some of the Earth's under-performing assets.

    OK, but It's just a flipping joke posted by S.H. surely you know that.

    It's not a real thought, but interesting how people think our leaders might respond.

    I think they would hi-tail-it out of harm’s way and hide.
