20|20 had a little fun last night. While the Republican Presidential debate raged on, we did a poll of Americans to see what they thought about the candidates in a more “tongue-in-cheek” way. Here is what 2000 Americans had to say last night to 5 burning questions with a little commentary tossed in for fun.
Who would you want as your partner on “The Amazing Race”? The Donald gets 58% of the vote! American’s think he is entertaining and fun. Even if they lose, they think he would be fun. Plus, he’s rich! They think he could “buy the race” if he wanted.
Which candidate looks most likely to have “inhaled” while in college? Trump was picked as most likely to inhale (25%), but followed closely by Christie (21%)…and Bush (19%)? Jeb Bush really? Did they confuse him with his brother George? This is the man Trump calls “Boring.” I’m thinking The Donald, Bush and Christie party together after the debate and make fun of “Straight Laced” Kasich (1%).
Which candidate is probably the best dancer? This was the tightest question of the night with Rubio, Firoino and Carson earning the “twinkle toes” moniker. Rubio (15%) barely edged out our only female candidate, Fiorina (14%). If they don’t win the Presidency, maybe we can see them on Dancing with the Stars? Once again, nobody wants to partner with Kasich (1%).
Which candidate would you most enjoy seeing roasted at a comedy roast? Trump runs away with this question (58%) because everyone wants to see him roasted. Even supporters say there is “so much” material, it would be hilarious! “His hair could have its own roast.” Detractors just want to see him taken down because “he is a walking joke.” It is true that the Late Night Comedians love The Donald.
Which candidate has the best hair? OK, so maybe “best” hair was not the most descriptive of the Trump mane. Still he won the category (24%), edging out our fav female candidate, Fiorina (15%). Kasich (1%) and Pataki (1%) only won at the Marine Barracks at Camp Pendleton.
