Sen. Barbara Boxer or Carly Fiorina, Who Has Better Hair?

A pollster with a sense of humor:

Public Policy Polling reports that Sen. Barbara Boxer, the Democratic incumbent, is beating former tech CEO Carly Fiorina 49-40 in a poll released today, though not in the category that really matters.

In addition to asking who voters will favor in November, the pollster inquired, "Do you have a higher opinion of Barbara Boxer's hair or Carly Fiorina's hair?"

Boxer came away with 19 percent to Fiorina's 14 percent. Fully two-thirds said, "Not sure," and probably with a look of bafflement and/or disgust when they heard the question.

Upcoming Events

Of course, the pollster (presumably) isn't some retro chauvinist, but is making light of an incident earlier this year when Fiorina was caught on a hot mic mocking Boxer's hair as "So yesterday."
