An Esquire/Yahoo! News poll released this week found that President Barack Obama is leading Mitt Romney among men, women, independents, and non-whites.

But more importantly, the survey answered a question that's obviously running through every voter's mind this election season: Who would win in hand-to-hand combat?

Americans, by far, apparently believe Obama is more physically intimidating than his Republican challenger. Fifty-eight percent of respondents said the president would win in a fistfight, compared to only 22 percent who had that confidence in Romney.

Other surveys have also found Obama is the more formidable of the pair, especially when it comes to foreign policy. In response to a similarly outlandish question from a National Geographic Channel poll released earlier this year, 65 percent of Americans said Obama is better suited to defend the nation against an alien invasion.
