The adult entertainment industry overwhelmingly favors President Barack Obama over Mitt Romney, a new industry poll finds.
"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...," writes XBIZ, the adult industry news organization that conducted the poll.
68 percent of the 339 respondents polled said they would like to see Obama elected, while 13 percent said Romney, less than the 14 percent who said they wanted “someone else."
"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,” Vivid Entertainment CEO Steven Hirsch said. “Social issues are more important than fiscal issues and they will support a candidate who shares their beliefs."
