It seems a little archaic to even hypothetically analyze which presidential candidate would win in a fist fight, but Esquire magazine and Yahoo! dared to ask the question. The winner? Barack Obama.

According to the poll, 58 percent of respondents voted for Obama, while 22 percent chose Romney and 20 percent had "no opinion." Naturally, we're taking this question to SodaHeads. Try to keep your political beliefs aside and think purely in the physical sense. It'll be a nice break from all the election rhetoric, we promise.

President Barack Obama and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney have been throwing political punches for months now. But who do Americans think would win in an actual brawl? A poll released Thursday by Esquire magazine and Yahoo! found that 58 percent of respondents think Obama would beat Romney in a fistfight, compared with 22 percent who chose Romney...

    The choice is very simple.
    We have the man, whose proudly states he chose Marxists and radicals while he was "government funded for life" and is a failure at both foreign policy and domestic issues (too many to list) vs the successful businessman who saved the Olympics for free, sucessfully governed using bipartisanship with an 80% democratic legislature and has the guts to tell the truth about our dire financial straights.

    Redistribution of wealth, spread the wealth, "the private sector is fine" (wth?) and "you didn't build that" has had his chance and he failed miserably, two credit downgrades in one term (both the first and second time in our nation's history).
    Yeah, I guess you still think he's "cool"
  • Mick Michaelene 2012/09/24 15:43:14
    Again, credit downgrades are courtesy Spendthrift Bush.
  • Michaelene Mick 2012/09/25 16:20:06
    Hey Mick, wake up pal. Bush was not on the ticket in 2008 nor is he on it again this year.
    Spendalicious NO BUDGET Obama is the man handing out blank checks and creating new dependants daily for the taxpayers burdens.
  • SunShine Mick 2012/09/30 18:14:45
    you are wrong sir.. they are courtesy of the democratic congress
  • Mick Michaelene 2012/09/24 15:40:06
    Sorry doll that train has left the station with "lying to the American people to justify a war Bush". Anything, EVEN OBAMA, is a step up from that.
  • Michaelene Mick 2012/09/25 16:24:39
    Funny how you can ignore the "military actions" that Obama has our troops in every continent.
    Perhaps you can pretend our troops are not in harm's way, the media ignores it too, but those of us who have family and friends sleeping in the sand, we will not forget or forgive Obama for his "bumps in the road" comments regarding the torture and butchering of our citizens.
    Time to move on or wake up, Bush is LONG GONE!

    obama is a fake. he throws like a girl, plays basketball like gumby's sister, and has tiki-tiki fist pump moves when he runs up or down stairs. he has all the moves of a sissy. romney would be direct and punch the obama grin into darkness.

    Barack has the secret service, the G men are the best gang on earth. Mitt has....good hair. Plus Barack grew up in the HI, all they do is scrap brah. Mitt has a good muscular frame, probably pretty solid...but that head is enormous. Great target. If it stays standing Obama wins, it goes to the ground...it might swing Mitts way. I think he could keep a brother down, for the finish. Mitt gets a full mount, feeling very comfy "on top" he may celebrate early and dismiss the small movements Obama uses to reverse him. Romney on bottom now panics and chokes himself in sheer desperation...should've kept mouth closed. Barack with the win, Crowd liked the action..yelling "four more rounds, four more rounds." He raises his hand and says "take back the title?" I don't think so.

    You must have a Time Machine and have come back from the Future where this happened. Too accurate sounding to be wrong.

    Romney just doesn't strike me as a guy who could handle himself in a dark alley.
  • beavith1 Patriotic 2012/09/20 16:36:28
    is that where he'd have to go to find Obama?
  • Patriotic beavith1 2012/09/20 23:54:11
    No, that is where we'd find you with your boyfriend...
  • beavith1 Patriotic 2012/09/21 03:00:13
    i thought you lefties loved gay people. you're not a bigot are you?
  • Patriotic beavith1 2012/09/21 11:10:49
    You see, you guys are all mixed up. Just because I am a Democrat doesn't make me gay or "love" gay people. I don't support gay marriage personally because I think it's disgusting. I also don't believe in blocking your right to be disgusting either.

    It's like this...I hate the Klan, but I support their right to say what they want. Even if I disagree with every single thing they stand for. I hope that clears things up for you.
  • beavith1 Patriotic 2012/09/21 15:16:30
    then why the cast a gay aspersion at me?

    you can dish it out, but you can't take it?

    isn't that the hallmark of a bully?
  • Patriotic beavith1 2012/09/22 03:18:56
    No, bullies are cowards and can't hang with the best of them. I can take anything you dish out and one up you anytime. I used that towards your because I thought it was fitting.
  • beavith1 Patriotic 2012/09/22 03:20:15
    i always suspected that you had something going on on the 'down low'.

    i don't.

    but thanks anyway for the invite...
  • Patriotic beavith1 2012/09/22 03:23:31
    "down low", you are the poster child for that type of scene. Why don't you go back to bed, your boyfriend is calling.
  • beavith1 Patriotic 2012/09/22 03:25:58
    it must be tough hating yourself like that.

    its time to come out of the closet.

    its OK. i'm told its widely accepted now...
  • Patriotic beavith1 2012/09/22 03:28:43
    Yes, you are and you can thank President Obama for that. Your party doesn't want you to be yourself and doesn't want you to serve your country openly. What a shame!
  • beavith1 Patriotic 2012/09/22 03:32:40
    not me. i'm set.

  • Patriotic beavith1 2012/09/22 03:36:33
    It's ok, you don't have to be embarrassed. Your secrete is safe wit me.
  • beavith1 Patriotic 2012/09/22 03:38:09
    i have no secrets. you have some reckoning of your own to do.
  • Patriotic beavith1 2012/09/22 03:54:56
    Are you projecting?

    finally. agreement.

    Now this is not a metaphor...
  • Mick beavith1 2012/09/24 16:11:13
    Twas a metaphor DA. Definition of METAPHOR

    Thank you...but I think I already had a general idea of what that meant.

    Romney once stood up to a bunch of rugby thugs defending a couple of missionary girls. He ran track in school and I think he has the mind set to fight well. Obama would fold up like wet laundry and scream for Axelrod to come explain to everyone that he got his butt kicked because he's a pacifist and refuses to fight.
