February 3, 2012 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
DALLAS, Feb. 3 (UPI) — Match.com, a dating Web site based in Dallas, said its second annual comprehensive study on singles found differences along political lines.
The Web site said the online survey of 5,541 single adults in the United States, conducted by research firm MarketTools, found conservative Republican respondents were the most likely to be very satisfied with their sexual activities, with 40 percent answering the question affirmatively, but they were also the least likely to have had sex in the past 12 months.
Match.com said Democratic respondents were the most likely to consider a sense of humor, similar lifestyle, sense of independence and a feeling of equality when searching for a partner, while Republicans were more likely to seek a similar background, same political beliefs and a desire to marry.
The survey suggests 87 percent of single men and 91 percent of single women believe there are “no acceptable excuses” for adultery on the part of a political candidate.
