NEW JERSEY — Governor Christie is the hottest politician in the country right now, a Quinnipiac thermometer poll rating American voters’ feelings on national figures found.
The governor got a 57 degrees score, beating out President Barack Obama’s 56.5 degrees.
Christie didn’t win the top spot, though. That goes to First Lady Michelle Obama, who tops the list with a 60.1 degree ranking. Former President Bill Clinton is number two with 59.2 degrees. Christie is third on the list, followed by the president.
The poll asked voters to give national figures a score from 1 to 100 on a “feeling thermometer,” and calculated the mean score.
The lowest-ranked spot went to Rep. Nancy Pelosi. U.S. Sen. Harry Reid is second to last, and former Alaska gov. Sarah Palin is third coolest.
