Poll: 68 percent of pornographers support Obama
LOS ANGELES, October 12, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com)—If the election were held today, Barack Obama would win in a landslide—if only pornographers voted. The vast majority of people who make their living in the pornography industry hope Barack Obama will serve another term, according to a new poll taken by the industry’s media website.
XBiz.com asked 339 people in the multi-billion dollar industry which candidate they support in the presidential election, and the result was not close. Barack Obama won 68 percent of the vote. Republican Mitt Romney placed a distant third with 13 percent, one point behind “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,” said Steven A. Hirsch, the CEO of Vivid Entertainment, one of the leading studios in the porn business. “Social issues are more important than fiscal issues and they will support a candidate who shares their beliefs.”
Hustler magnate Larry Flynt agreed the results were “not surprising.”
Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder closed the Obscenity Prosecution Task Force earlier this year.

“The porn industry is flourishing because the Obama administration has given it a green light to distribute hardcore porn to every man, woman, and child in America,” said Pat Trueman, the president of Morality in Media and a former prosecutor in the Reagan administration’s porn crackdown.
Trueman has said a future Romney administration will be tougher on obscenity.
Flynt’s public support for Democrats stretches back to his opposition to President Ronald Reagan and a high-profile clash with the late Reverend Jerry Falwell in the 1980s. During the Clinton years, he offered vast sums of money for those who could provide evidence of Republicans’ extra-martial affairs.
More recently, he made a pornographic film mocking Sarah Palin and her family and said that Palin “did a disservice to every woman in America” by not aborting her special needs son, Trig.
