August 5, 2013 - Christie, Clinton Are Hottest Leaders In America, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Congressional Leaders At Bottom Of Thermometer
PDF format

New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the hottest politicians on today's Quinnipiac University Thermometer of voter attitudes toward the nation's major political figures. The four lowest scores went to the congressional leaders of both parties. A surprise third place on the Thermometer goes to newly-elected Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, although 51 percent of voters don't know enough about her to rate her.

Christie, at 53.1 degrees on the Thermometer, Clinton, at 52.1 degrees, and Warren, at 49.2 degrees, are hotter than President Barack Obama, at 47.6 degrees, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. In another surprise, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand matches Obama's heat with 47.6 degrees, although 75 percent of voters don't know enough about her to take her temperature.

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas scores 46.8 degrees, with 60 percent offering no opinion.

"Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's score is not surprising given her lengthy political career and especially strong support among Democrats and women," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "But Gov. Christopher Christie's rating is impressive given that his experience - less than four years as governor - pales compared to Mrs. Clinton' s resume. What is interesting is that only two of the 22 figures rate better than the absolute middle of the scale, not exactly a ringing endorsement of the nation's political establishment."

Although Gov. Christie is the hottest leader in the eyes of all American voters, he ranks eighth in the hearts of Republican voters, with 59.8 degrees. U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the GOP's 2012 vice presidential candidate, generates the most heat among Republican voters with 68.7 degrees.

"Christie's great strength is among independent voters, who give him 50.6 degrees of love, and Democrats, who give him 53.2 degrees," Brown said. "His rating on the Thermometer scale is a good indication of what may face him should he travel the 2016 campaign trail. His tougher problem may be winning the GOP nomination because in most states only registered Republicans are able to vote in party primaries," said Brown.

"For example, Christie is much hotter than Sen. Rand Paul among all voters, but trails him by a bit among Republicans.

Clinton scores 44.2 degrees among independent voters and a below-freezing 31.6 degrees among Republicans.

6. (INTRO TO Q6a-Q6v ROTATED) 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) How do you feel about --- ?

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, Trend listed if previously asked)
