Which likable politicians would be fun to have a few drinks with? Many politicians market themselves as regular folks you'd want to sit down for a beer with. George W. Bush, for one, is thought to have won the 2004 election because of his "regular guy" appeal. An August, 2004 Zogy/Williams Identity Poll found that 57.3% of undecided voters would rather have had a beer with Bush over his opponent John Kerry - despite the fact that Bush didn't actually drink. This was around the time Kerry was doing well in polls, and it might have caused a resurgence in Bush's popularity.
But when it comes right down to it, who are the politicians you like who you'd *actually* want to hang out with over a few oat sodas, as opposed to the ones who just want to make you think that because it might get you to pick them? Maybe you'd like to talk P90X with Paul Ryan, or get a front row seat for all manner of Joe Biden shenanigans?
In the spirit of Ranker's lists of both famous men and famous women you'd want to grab a beer with, here's a list of current political figures who'd probably be fun to knock back a few adult beverages with. Vote up the ones who you think you'd have a good time with, vote down the ones who'd bore you to death, or even worse, try to convince you to vote for them!
