F1C1

I'd like to get your feelings toward some people in the news
these days. I'll read the name of a person and I'll ask you to
rate that person on a thermometer that runs from 0 to 100
degrees.

Rating above 50 means that you feel favorable and warm toward
the person. Rating below 50 means that you feel unfavorable and
cool toward the person. Rating right at the 50 degree mark
means you don't feel particularly warm or cold.

You may use any number from 0 to 100 to tell me how favorable
or unfavorable your feelings are. If we come to a person whose
name you don't recognize, just tell me and we'll move on to the
next one.
