Obama Is the Hottest Candidate

After taking the temperature of American voters about possible Presidents, Gallup announces that “only one--Barack Obama--stirs up warm feelings in a majority of Americans. However, Rudy Giuliani, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, and John McCain are all close to Obama in favorability.”

Although nearly a third of Americans have never heard of Fred Thompson, among those who have, the plurality (30 percent) feels warmly toward him. Sadly Mitt Romney, Joe Biden, Bill Richardson, Mike Huckabee, and Sam Brownback leave them cold.

Gallup seems to have invented the “feeling thermometer,” but it is not clear on which medical prototype it has been modeled, oral or rectal.
