This isn't a general election poll as such, so Tender, feel free to move this if you like.  The question posed was simply "Would this person make a good president?"  Sort of like if we used approval voting:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/interactive/2013/02/13/fox-news-poll-hillary-clinton-and-rice-top-picks-who-would-make-good-president/

yes/no %
H. Clinton 55/42% for +13%
Christie 37/33% for +4%
Rice 43/43% for +/-0%
Rubio 25/29% for -4%
Ryan 37/46% for -9%
Jindal 16/25% for -9%
Patrick 6/19% for -13%
O'Malley 5/18% for -13%
McDonnell 6/22% for -16%
Cuomo 16/39% for -23%
Biden 35/59% for -24%
J. Bush 26/56% for -30%

[Poll conducted Feb. 4-6, 1010 registered voters.]

Huge gender gap on Clinton, which is consistent with other polls we've been seeing recently on both her favorability and head-to-head matchups.  And olds are more likely to think she'd be a good president than youngs, in contrast to the normal Dem. trend of appealing to the young.  Again, consistent with the polling from PPP on the age gap collapsing.

Rice is the one Republican for whom women are more likely to think she'd be a good president than men.

Polls like this and approval rating/have you heard of polls are more enlightening this far out than actual horse race.

What we learned from this
- Hillary is positioned very well, might have some work to do with white men
- Rice and Christie are well positioned for this stage
- Biden has an image/joke problem
- Rubio has a small image problem (nothing that cant be fixed)
- Ryan still has the stink of loser on him
- Bush has bigger stink of his brother on him
- Cuomo, McDonnell, O'Malley, Patrick and Jindal need to up their profiles

At this point, only Christie and Hillary are in the green. If those are the two in the general, it can still be a very contentious race.

Those Biden and Bush numbers are very amusing.

As with the PPP polls, we see that Christie's strong numbers come more from crossover appeal, where Clinton's come from her huge numbers among Democrats.

Christie:
Dems: -7%
Indies: +8%
Reps: +14%

Clinton:
Dems: +70%
Indies: +7%
Reps: -46%

Yes that's what I would've guessed for right now Hillary 1, Christie 2, and Rice 3.

Hillary does +26 better than any other Democrat? That seems like a bit much.

A lot can change, but that looks really bad if you're a Biden or Bush fan.

They asked essentially the same question for Jeb Bush in May 2006, and it was 22/57% for -35%.  So over the course of 7 years, he's managed to improve from -35% to -30% on whether he'd be a good president.

They want a Lincoln. There aren't any Lincolns.

We already have a Lincoln. His name is Barack Obama and he's currently in office. What we need now is an Eisenhower, a steady hand at the till to manage the booming economy Obama will leave his successor.

It's sad to see that one of my favorite Dem politicians, Deval Patrick, is not doing so well. It doesn't surprise me, however, as he stated after 2012's DNC that he didn't intend to run at all.

Pretty terrible numbers for a sitting VP there. Biden probably has a slim chance of getting the nomination even if Clinton doesn't run.
