Polls about fitness and perception of the overweight

Every month, Vanity Fair magazine does a poll in conjunction with CBS’ “60 Minutes.” June’s subject is fitness, or, rather, how we feel about fitness. How would Americans feel about a fat president? Good news for some politicians (and yes, VF admits having a certain politician in mind): 64 percent of respondents said weight “has nothing to do with getting the job done.” Could we be attracted to someone who is out of shape? More good news for the less-than-svelte: 74 percent said yes.
