Today’s New Hampshire primary is well underway, and there are some pressing political issues being addressed by the GOP candidates. While it will be exciting to see the results come in, here at PopWatch, we are working on the really big news – mainly how Rick Santorum has managed to make a fashion statement with his signature sweater vests, going so far as selling the sweaters (new ones, we hope, not his actual sweaters) for $100 a pop. It’s certainly one way to keep (half) warm in New Hampshire, where the high today was 37 degrees. But he’s not the first popular figure to rock the sweater vest, in fact it might be the only thing he and, say, Justin Timberlake have in common.

So who wore it vest? Vote in our poll, and then sound off in the comments — it’s like a primary and a caucus, all in one! Democracy in action!
