    Just FYI — I searched the list for Ian Stewart, and he was there, #37. Two spots below, at #39, is Barack Obama. To be accurate, the list you referenced is titled “Mathematicians’ Favorite Twitter Feeds” not “Mathematicians on Twitter” — so it appears that Barack Obama is well-liked by mathematicians, whether or not he knows anything about Cantor sets or Bell inequalities.

    • My bad! (Either that, or mathematicians are more “liberal” than the general population.)

        It could also be that a certain number of mathematicians will subscribe to the Twitter feed of whoever is President — so we do not have a “control” study of liberal vs conservative when it comes to mathematicians. But I would suggest that mathematicians would favor the popular vote rather than some arbitrarily subdivided and rehashed version of it… if I may be so bold, Mr. Torrance.

      • For what it’s worth, however. In his day Kurt Goedel preferred Ike to Adlai.
