Poll: Sarah Palin Is Most Attractive Politician, Bill Clinton Second
CBS DC ^ | September 25, 2012 1:13 PM

Posted on 09/25/2012 6:37:15 PM PDT by drewh

If winning the popular vote in the latest beauty poll has any implications on the 2012 Presidential Election, Barack Obama is looking good.

In what is being dubbed as the largest political beauty poll in history, Sarah Palin edged out former President Bill Clinton as the most attractive politician in the game.

Thousands of Americans voted in the poll on BeautifulPeople.com, a site usually devoted to being the most exclusive online dating community on the web.

Of the 10 candidates listed in the poll, the majority of the 57,000 voters designated Palin as “favorable.” That’s good news for the front runner of the Tea Party.

Voters also found Bill Clinton to be 23 percent more attractive than his wife, and current Secretary of the State, Hillary Clinton.

President Obama finished fourth while Mitt Romney placed seventh in the rankings. Pollsters found Obama has a 15 percent more favorable look than his Republican challenger.

Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan came in sixth on the poll, one spot ahead of the leading man on the GOP ticket.

Top 10 Most Attractive Politicians:

Politician % favorable vote Sarah Palin (R) 64% Bill Clinton (D) 63% Gavin Newsom (D) 61% Barack Obama (D) 57% John Boehner (R) 54% Paul Ryan (R) 47% Mitt Romney (R) 42% Joe Biden (D) 42% Hillary Clinton (D) 40% Joe Kennedy (D) 39%

But it wouldn’t be a complete superficial survey without a separate poll to determine the nation’s ugliest politicians.

Top 10 Ugliest Politicians:

Politician % favorable vote Barney Frank (D) 8% John McCain (R) 8% Chris Christie (R) 9% Newt Gingrich (R) 14% Ron Paul (R) 16% Nancy Pelosi (D) 24% John Edwards (D) 28% George Bush (R) 30% Al Gore (D) 32% Michele Bachmann (R) 32%

I don’t think their listing of “ugliest” is correct.

They have merely listed the ten who scored the least of “most attractive”.

One can surmise no one was asked to list the ugliest politician.

This looks like the sole purpose of reporting was to list *A* George Bush among the “worst” (least attractive) and the Great Clinton and the Fraud among the most attractive.

I had the “pleasure” of meeting Clinton in Arkansas while he was governor and I was in college. I was a confused liberal back then, so there was no political bias. There was/is nothing attractive inside or out about him. He tried to flirt with some of the girls in my group and he came across as a pervert to the women and a pandering sleaze to the men, the epitome of a disgusting politician - and having been in school government, I had met several prominent ones.

Please, someone explain his appeal to me because I have never understood it.

“Please, someone explain his appeal to me because I have never understood it.”

I worked nearby some proud-to-be-liberal women in their 30’s and 40’s around 1993-1994 and they gushed about his “charisma” after whatever speech he made the night before.

I didn’t see it either, but that’s what fascinated them, and they never met the Great Clinton.

There’s a certain type of woman who is attracted to bad boys. The badder the boy the better. The reasoning being, if they can tame a guy no other woman can tame, that makes them an extra special kind of woman.

Their ranks are overflowing with delusional female Democrats.

Hmm... So are the women who pursue death row inmates worse than the perverted Democrat politician lovers?

.Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including
the bestseller The Elephant Whisperer, bravely rescued wildlife and
rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including
the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.

On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died.

He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons and numerous
elephants.

Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs.

Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend.

A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.

Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence ‘s passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way:
Walking slowly - for days - Making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house.

Lawrence ‘s wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the
elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years!

But yet they knew where they were going.

The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who’d saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything. Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back.

From a purely objective viewpoint, Bill Clinton (fat blubbery guy), Hillary Clinton (of cankles fame), and Joe “Plugs” Biden do not belong on a list of attractive people. Send them to list two for the ugly. On the other hand, a good number on the ugly list belong on list one or close to good looking status. Michelle Bachmann is a good looking woman. To show my objective bona fides, Nancy Pelosi was not bad in her day. Remember she’s in her seventies today. As for the guys, if they mean W for George Bush, then move another to list one. Good looking guy in tip top shape. He may be a scumbag, but John Edwards is not an ugly dude. Inside he is, but outside he is not. My Hall of Fame of the ugly would be Janet Reno (recieved 100% of all ballots), Robert Reich, Janet Napolitano, Barbara Mikulski, Henry Waxman, Pete Stark,

My wife is a firearms instructor. Once in a shotgun class, she showed a guy how to rack a shotgun one handed. He promptly proposed to her.

I’m guessing it’s simply not as easy to procreate with a death row inmate (except for Ted Bundy and who knows who else) so the freak women DO MORE HARM loving perverted Democrat politicians, since it’s easier to make more of them.

Except for Slick, who is allegedly sterile when needed.

Except for Chelsea, if she is his.

Whoever said Bill Clinton was attractive needs their head examined. He’s one year older than Mitt Romney, which makes him 66 years old. He looks 76. He looks like a man in bad health on top of that. Skinny as a weed, snow-white hair, with sunken in jaws. Romney on the other-hand looks like he’s in his middle 50s. By the way Clinton probably has white die on his hair. According to Dick Morris he started dying his light brown hair gray when he was in his early 40s so he would look “distinguished”. A fake, fraud, two-bit Southern used car salesman is all this worthless SOB has ever been.
