LOS ANGELES — The re-election of Barack Obama to a second term as president on Tuesday night also appeared to be a victory for the adult entertainment industry, which overwhelmingly favored the incumbent in a poll conducted in October by media organization XBIZ.

In spite of being in an era of declining industry revenues due to the glut of free content available online and rampant piracy, the majority of adult insiders sided with the Democratic candidate Obama over the Republican candidate Mitt Romney in the 2012 election, the XBIZ Research Poll found. The results were based on responses from members of XBIZ.net, the adult entertainment industry’s top social network.

XBIZ asked industry members: “Which candidate would you like elected U.S. president?”

Of the 339 respondents in October, 68% said Obama, while only 13% favored Romney. Another 14% wanted to see “someone else” in the White House, while 5% responded “I don’t care.”

Economic considerations aside, the issue of possible federal obscenity prosecutions figured to be a major factor for adult content producers in the voting booth. According to the notorious pro-censorship organization Morality in Media, Mitt Romney earlier this year, along with other Republican candidates at the time, offered assurances that if elected, they would direct the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute porn producers for obscenity violations.
