Washington DC, Mar 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie has always felt that he could beat Barack Obama in the 2012 polls. That though seems to be true to a point because he has higher ratings than the President in a latest poll.

In a poll of about 23 public figures in the United States, 48-year-old Christie polled 57 degrees to place third. The”National Thermometer” reading was conducted by Quinnipiac University to find the ‘hottest’ public figure in the United States. They were ranked on the scale on 0 to 100 degrees.

Interestingly, First Lady Michelle Obama was the hottest with 60.1 degrees. Former President Bill Clinton was second with 59.2 degrees. Outspoken tea party activist, Sarah Palin, found herself at the bottom ranks of the list placing 21 out of the list of 23 people with 38.2 degrees.

The race between Barack Obama and Christie was close. The President polled 56.5 degrees. The President was hotter among women than in men. The reverse was true for Christie. The poll revealed that women gave President Obama 60.4 degrees while men gave the President 51.9 degrees.

The survey involved phone-in interaction with about 1,887 registered voters. The poll was conducted from 21st to 18th February.
