Barack Obama Would Beat Mitt Romney In A Fight, Say Voters

Let's face it, what we all really want to see in the US presidential election is Barack Obama and Mitt Romney cagefighting for the White House.

And on the basis of a Esquire/Yahoo! News poll published today it seems most Americans think the 55-year old president would have no trouble laying the smack down on his 65-year old Republican challenger.

Of those asked 58% thought Obama would win in a fight and only 22% thought Romney would, while 20% had "no opinion". Spoilsports.

Amusingly the pollsters felt the need specify the question was "just for fun".
