Turnaround is fair play

Anthony Wells, pollster king, has been defending the decision of YouGov to ask whether Ed Miliband was 'too ugly' to be PM. As the person who handles YouGov's polling for the Sunday Times, it will ultimately have been his decision to run the question. Indeed, he may even have come up with the idea.

Of course, he does have a point that how much we trust someone often is linked to physical attractiveness. And who do we need to have trust in more than pollsters?

Which begs the question, Anthony Wells, hot or not?
