A Quinnipiac Poll measuring "thermometer" of voters' attitudes towards political figures found Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton tied at 44.2 each, leading all other Democrats, among independents. That's the good news. The bad news is that seven Republican candidates-- Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker and Marco Rubio all scored better than both Warren and Clinton among Independents. 

Among Democrats, Warren came in fourth, after Clinton, Obama and Biden.

A Washington Post  article by Chris Cillizza and Sean Sullivan commented that the
"...poll  proves why Warren would be formidable in 2016 if she decided to run. Using a feeling thermometer -- 0 meaning you feel totally cold about a politician, 100 meaning you feel warmly (aka) strong favorably toward a pol -- Quinnipiac tested the majority of major national figures.
Warren finished third -- behind only New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (53.1 degrees) and Hillary Clinton (52.1 degrees).  She finished ahead of, among others, President Obama, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Vice President Joe Biden.
Here's why the thermometer matters -- and matters for Warren in particular.  It's a measure of passion, which is, of course, the sine qua non of politics. While passion isn't everything -- fundraising matters, organization matters -- it's hard to get elected to anything without passionate supporters.
...the ability to evoke genuine, organic passion in potential voters is the rarest and most critical of all candidate characteristics. Warren has that ability, whether or not she wants to use it in 2016 -- or beyond."

The fact that independents are hotter for seven Republicans before any Democrats show up does not bode well for the mid-term elections. independent are apparently more unhappy with the Democrats.
