Quinnipiac University National Thermometer Poll

I'd like to get your feelings toward some of our political leaders and other people who have been in the news. I'll read the name of a person and I'd like you to rate that person using something called the feeling thermometer.

You can choose any number between 0 and 100. The higher the number, the warmer or more favorable you feel toward that person, the lower the number, the colder or less favorable.

If we come to a person who you haven't heard enough about to form an opinion, you don't need to rate the person. Just tell me and we'll move on to the next one. (Split sample, names were rotated, each respondent asked 15 names)
The Quinnipiac University poll asked voters to rate leaders from 0 to 100 degrees on a "feeling thermometer," with the highest numbers reflecting the warmest feelings:

Christopher Christie  57
Rudolph Giuliani  52.3
Mike Huckabee  51.8
John Boehner  51.1
Mitt Romney  50.4
Tim Pawlenty  48.2
Jon Huntsman  47.9
Ron Paul  46.3
Michelle Bachman  45.6
Mitch McConnell  45.2
Mitch Daniels  45.1
Donald Trump  45
Rick Santorum  43.9
Haley Barbour  43.5
Newt Gingrich  42.7
Sarah Palin  38.2
From February 21 - 28, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,887 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.3 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones. 
Please note: I've deleted the Democrats who were included on this poll, because THEY'RE IRRELEVANT.

Warm and fuzzy poll.
What will the think of next?

Perhaps which candidate sends a tingle up your leg?

These numbers are embarrassing for Palin.

I'm waiting for the tingle poll. That should have the most valid data.
