Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have the highest favorable ratings among New Hampshire voters, according to the most recent Granite State Poll.
The survey of 516 registered voters conducted July 18 to July 29 for WMUR-TV showed that Ryan, the 2012 GOP vice presidential candidate, was viewed favorably by 66 percent of those surveyed.
He topped the Granite poll for the second straight time.
Only 18 percent of those surveyed had an unfavorable opinion of Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, while 16 percent were either neutral or responded that they did not know about him.
Those following Ryan were Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, with 37 percent; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, with 33 percent; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, with 29 percent; Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, with 27 percent; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, with 26 percent; and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, with 25 percent.
Leading the Democratic field was Clinton, who won the 2008 New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary.
Eighty-five percent of those surveyed in the Granite poll expressed a favorable opinion of Clinton, versus only 13 percent who were unfavorable and 2 percent were neutral or unsure.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick followed Clinton, with a 41 percent favorable rating among New Hampshire voters in the survey, while Vice President Joe Biden had 31 percent, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo garnered 22 percent.
The Granite poll was conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.
