ARCHDALE, N.C., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The first edition of the Sealy
Snooze Report asks, "What Presidential candidate puts you to sleep?" The
results are in and the mattress majority cannot pick just one candidate to
lead them as 38% of those surveyed say ALL the candidates put them to sleep,
proving once again, a politician and a Sealy Posturepedic are all one needs to
get a good night's rest!

Should Senator John Kerry win the election, results suggest the American
public may want to drink a strong cup of coffee before watching the
Presidential inauguration as 25% of those surveyed voted Kerry the most sleep-
Sealy does not endorse any Presidential candidate and it's not here to
judge but rather to report the "Snooze News". That stated, only one winner
can be declared in this race and it's the insomniac's "dream ticket", the
bipartisan Kerry-Cheney team!
Percentage of Americans put to sleep by the candidates ...
John Kerry 25% Dick Cheney 9%
George W. Bush 14% John Edwards 3%
Golden Slumbers. There was also a great divide found among household
incomes above $75,000 where 29% were falling asleep to Kerry and only 12% were
sleeping because of Bush.
Wise guys. Perhaps all the time listening to class lectures has prepared
college grads for presidential campaigns, as 44% of those without a college
degree couldn't decide which candidate put them to sleep and said "they all
do!" Among those with a college or post-graduate degree, only 34% answered
Pillow talk. Stop the presses! Men and women agree! They answered just
about the same for every candidate, except one ... Kerry. 28% of men said
they fall asleep to Kerry's sweet lullabies of tax reforms, healthcare
revisions and foreign policy whereas only 23% of women said the same. Could
it be his boyish good looks are keeping the ladies awake at night?
