President Barack Obama's second term just got under way, but it's outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is far more popular, according to a new Quinnipiac poll testing politicians' favorability ratings. Need evidence that House Republicans are unpopular? House Speaker John Boehner sits at the bottom of the list, by far, in terms of net favorability. The poll, which surveyed 1,772 registered voters nationally, was conducted between January 30 and February 4. It has a margin of error of +/- 2.3 percentage points.
