So how good is this pollster? Do we trust them?

Paul, Romney, Bush perform roughly equal to their favorability.  Paul and Bush both have room to grow, but its obvious (at least in this poll) that Bush is worse off.  

At this point, it doesn't look good for Republicans in New Hampshire, since Hillary's favorables are over 50.  Though it will be interesting to see how that dynamic plays out elsewhere.

Edit:  Though Obama's favorability rating looks pretty low compared to other polls (besides the Yougov, which isn't trustworthy).  Also, they're using a likely voter model for an election that's 2 years away.

Bloomberg is a good journalistic source. Figuring that Hillary is going to win her favorability rating which is surely very close to her approval rating...

New Hampshire will not be an instant call as in 2008, but I can;t see the state going for any Republican.

Hillary's favorables are +6, identical to Obama's winning margin there in 2012. Remember Romney started 2012 off with a big lead over Obama in NH. Poll also has issues because it only asks primary voters, you need to ask the lazy people who don't vote in primaries but do in November.

Better headline: "Hillary up 7-8 points on people who could actually be the nominee"

Bush, Clinton, and Romney benefit from mostly everyone knowing who they are (specifically Clinton and Romney). Surely Republicans don't want to go through the 47% comments again?
