    Name Favorable unfavorable
    Biden…….29………………57
    Jeb Bush..26………………38
    Christie….46………………28* These numbers taken before bridgegate
    Clinton…..34……………..55
    Cruz………..29…………….38
    Huckabee..39…………….30
    Paul…………40…………….33
    Warren…….19……………32

    For me among independents, the biggest surprise is the positive numbers for Rand Paul.
    From your PPP poll, I would also call the favorable ratings for Huckabee a surprise.
    And how high the ratings were for Christie, even before BridgeGate.
    From the OP, I was surprised that Obama was so highly favorable in the USA and the World.
    This is my first post since last Friday.

    Well, I wouldn't expect any of the to readily admit to current drug use unless their last name is Ford.

    It was an most admired list and any president always ranks up near the top, not necessarily a favorable/unfavorable rating type thing. It is not even a job approval/nonapproval. Although the president has had a very slow upswing from his 3 Dec low of 39-56 to today's 42-53.

    Remember getting close to the election and independents were give President Obama an job approval number of 45% but I think it was 56% liked him as a person. I think there is a lot of this in the most admired columns for him. I really haven't seen any favorable ratings for Obama recently outside of job approval, but that is probably because he can't run anymore.

    I sort of fall into this group, I think Obama is probably a below average president, at least concerning the ones I experienced. But I like him as a person. I wouldn't mind having a beer with him, but Clinton is the president whom I would most want to share a beer with among those I have known. Clinton could tell me of his escapades on the astro turf of his El Camino and I could let him know what Bangkok was like.

    I wasn't that surprised about Huckabee, he was a popular governor of Arkansas, ran for the Republican nomination back in 2008 and dropped out fairly early. Since then he has had his show on Fox, I never seen it outside of a minute here and a minute there while switching channels. He does come across as very likeable, courteous, always smiling and is not the obnoxious kind. So his approval ratings are probably inflated because not many know much about him. My take.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I don't, but it was rather salient if you ask me...The next Presidential election is shaping up to be a real bloody one...Dirt on both sides regardless that the press will have to concoct their dirt to even the playing field.

    This poll has nothing to do with the next presidential election. It wasn't a poll asking "do you admire Hillary Clinton?" It was a poll asking "who do you admire more between these ten people?" So you had a portion of people pick the current president, the pope, one or two other people, then everyone else came in a virtual tie with next to nothing vote wise. You are already trying to relive the awful 2012 election by convincing yourself that all of the polling that says Hillary Clinton is ahead is all wrong because you found one goofy poll that told you what you wanted to hear. I think it's just sad on your part.

    Watch out friend....The depression after a 2016 loss is going to be unbearable if you don't face reality now.

    Absolutely....but the chances of that occurring are pretty slim. GWB pretty much screwed the chance of Jeb ever getting elected. I think people are going to be reluctant to put another Bush in the whitehouse after that fiasco. Too bad though. Jeb is definitely the smarter of the two.
