Chris Christie Is America’s Hottest Politician


Of course, we are referring not to sexual attractiveness (we hope that headline wasn’t misleading!) but to a Quinnipiac poll that asked voters to rate political figures from 0 degrees to 100 degrees on a “feeling thermometer” — the warmer the feelings, the higher the temperature. Christie came away with an average of 57 degrees, which we’re pretty sure would be a death sentence in real life, but in this poll represents the highest mean temperature among all active politicians. President Obama was just behind him at 56.5 degrees. [Quinnipiac]
