Poll: Most Won't Vote for Sarah Palin or Donald Trump

Sarah Palin and Donald Trump may want to stop getting estimates for a move to the White House -- they will never live there, if the results of a new poll are to be believed.

According to a report from Yahoo! News, a survey from Quinnipiac University found 58% of registered voters said they "would never vote" for either reality star for president. 

This particular poll was designed to measure "enthusiasm" for potential Republican candidates.

Yahoo writes:

Though 15 percent of respondents indicated they are enthusiastic about Palin, only 24 percent said they would consider voting for her. Trump received a 9 percent enthusiasm rating and a 26 percent rating on whether individuals would vote for him.

"Sarah Palin and Donald Trump suffer from the reality that, as our mothers told us, 'You never get a second chance to make a first impression,'" said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Polling Institute said in his analysis.

Mitt Romney did the best in the poll, with 15% saying they are enthusiastic about him and 38% saying they would "consider voting for him." Mike Huckabee was second -- 13% in enthusiasm, 34% might vote for him.

"Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee are in the best shape," said Brown.

However, Romney and Huckabee should not count on a White House mailing address either -- support for "don't know" is just as strong as for Romney and Huckabee.
