Kasich least kissable, poll finds

Americans find Ohio Gov. John Kasich the least kissable presidential candidate, only 1 percent would like to have him at their holiday party and just 1 percent say he would be the best candidate to play Santa Claus, according to a new poll released Tuesday by The Salonniere.

The holiday-themed survey of 1,600 Americans drilled into less-than-hard-hitting questions and Kasich did not fare well.
