MobiTV Asks Whose Cheating Is Worse

March 24, 2008 12:06 AM

Mobile video viewers don’t think too much of a shared Democratic ticket, according to the latest poll from MobiTV. What’s more, they think former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s marital infidelity was more reprehensible than President Bill Clinton’s.

On its “Decision '08” channel on its mobile video service, the carrier asked users if the Democrats should form a “dream ticket” of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Turns out 67% of MobiTV users think that’s a bad idea.

MobiTV also asked whether Mr. Clinton or Mr. Spitzer’s infidelity was worse. And a resounding 83% said Spitzer’s “indiscretion” was the seedier one.

The ongoing survey also reported that 80% of respondents believe the U.S. economy is in a recession.
