Washington (CNN) A majority of Americans say they would never support Sarah Palin or Donald Trump for president, according to a new national poll.
A Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday indicates that 58 percent of the public says they would never vote for the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, with an equal amount saying the same thing about the billionaire businessman, real estate mogul, and reality TV star.
Fifteen percent of people questioned say they are enthusiastic about Palin as a candidate and around one in four say they would consider voting for her for president. According to the poll, nine percent say they are enthusiastic about Trump as a candidate, with about a quarter saying they would consider voting for him for president.
Palin has not made any major moves towards running for the GOP presidential nomination, but says she's not ruling anything out. Trump says he'll announce by June whether he'll run for the White House.
At the opposite end of the poll are two Republicans who ran for their party's nomination in the last presidential election: Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee.
Fifty-three percent say they are enthusiastic or would consider voting for Romney, with just over one in four saying they would never support the former Massachusetts governor for president. Romney has formed a presidential exploratory committee and is expected to formally declare his candidacy later this year.
According to the survey, 47 percent say they are enthusiastic or would consider voting for Huckabee, with 32 percent saying they would never vote for the former Arkansas governor for the White House. Huckabee has not, to date, made many public moves towards launching a campaign, but his advisers push back anytime it's suggested that he won't run for president.

The MEDIA is picking our canidate again...
My Mistake, it was a Quinnipiac Survey Poll.
Apologize for it.
LOL!!! MSM trying to pick our nominee.
FR poll: most think CNN is a communist network.
Thank you CNN for naming the candidates Obama fears.
A CNN poll huh? Somehow I don’t think that counts for much.
Why not?....they voted for Obama?
It does not matter.
More will vote for Palin than would vote for Obama.
CNN said it so it must be true.
I guess that leaves Romney, Gingrich and Huckabee.
Isn’t it great that CNN is here to help us pick a strong candidate?
And they’d all vote for Romney or Huckster.
They’ll vote for Trump once he forces Obama to release the photos!
Where will the rest of the vote go if the majority would not vote for Palin or Obama?
Have either stated their running?
No, way, no how.
We should do the exact opposite of what the PushNews PropagandaPolls tell us to do.
ALL of them....even the “respected” ones.
let me guess participation results Dems 75% Rep 5% Ind 20 %
I said I’d never vote for McCain, but I did....
The media also is once again trying to discredit Palin by lumping her in with Trump.
Kinda like “Majority say they won’t vote for Hitler, Stalin, John Wayne Gacy or Palin for President”
