Sex lives of elephants and donkeys

Man, this is too good. Tom Maguire buried it in an unrelated, long post, and I almost missed it. Paul at Wizbang trumpeted it.

According to an ABC News poll, more Republicans are happy with their sex lives than Democrats.

The poll analysis includes a breakdown by many subgroups, including region, age and even political party affiliation, which is the topic of results released today:

Of those involved in a committed relationship, who is very satisfied with their relationship?
Republicans — 87 percent; Democrats — 76 percent

Who is very satisfied with their sex life?
Republicans — 56 percent; Democrats — 47 percent

The poll analysis also reveals who has worn something sexy to enhance their sex life:
Republicans — 72 percent; Democrats — 62 percent

When asked whether they had ever faked an orgasm, more Democrats (33 percent) than Republicans (26 percent) said they had.
Paul says that Republicans tend to be happier in general and it spills over into the bedroom. I think there's truth to that, although I would say that Republicans are more content with what they have in life, while Democrats are convinced someone else has an unfair advantage, an attitude that sours every aspect of their lives.

Oh, and the poll adds:
Also, Democrats are more likely to be women; and the poll results show that women are more likely to fake orgasms.
Really? Who would have suspected?
