The Survey of the American Man

Posted by Brian on June 22, 2006

Esquire did a survey of American men asking about politics, sex, and fashion. Here are what I consider to be some of the more itneresting results, along with my own answer.

Colin Powell – 5.9%
Bill Clinton – 5.8%
Bill Gates – 5.8%
George W. Bush – 5.3%
John McCain – 4.0%

My vote: Jimmy Carter

2. Who is the least admirable man in America?

George W. Bush – 14.8%
Bill Clinton – 7.8%
Ted Kennedy – 7.7%

My vote: George W. Bush

 7. Which of the following best describes your level of alcohol consumption?

I don’t drink, period. 26%
I’ll have the occasional drink at a party. 37%
I have a few drinks a week. 27%

I drink daily, but never more than a drink or two. 5%

My vote: I have a few drinks a week, mostly cocktails at home.

11. Which of these three words best describes your belief (or not) in God?

 My answer: 5

You’re hosting a dinner party and you can invite three men and three women from the following lists. Who’s coming to dinner? (Percentage is number who selected each person among their three choices.)
