Americans pick Obama in alien attack


In case of an alien invasion, which presidential candidate would you trust more? National Geographic Channel conducted a real survey to find out. We're talking actual aliens, not of the illegal variety.

According to the poll, nearly 65 percent of Americans would pick President Obama to handle an extraterrestrial situation over rival Mitt Romney. (Maybe it goes back to foreign policy experience?) Breaking down the numbers even further, NGC found 68 percent of women say Obama would do a better job handling these visitors verses 61 percent of men. Younger citizens, ages 18 to 64 years, tended to side with Obama, too. 

Whichever person would take on said alien invaders, we just hope they climb on to the wing of a fighter jet, like Bill Pullman's epic scene in "Independence Day," and yell at the top of their lungs, "We will not go quietly into the night!"
