Quinnipiac’s “National Thermometer” poll is out today. It’s something like what traditional pollsters call a “net favorable” rating, only conducted by asking participants to rate politicians betwen 0 and 100 on a “feeling thermometer.”

The results are bizarre, and favor people nobody’s ever heard of — Mark Warner and Russ Feingold match Hillary simply by clustering around the “50” mark, which in their case reflects obscurity, but in hers polarization.

Grumble grumble. We report, you decide.
