Survey Methods

Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Jan. 4-5, 2011, on the Gallup Daily tracking survey, with a random sample of 923 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, selected using random-digit-dial sampling.
For results based on the total sample of Republicans, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.

They are simply subtracting the net strongly favorable from the net strongly unfavorable.

Furthermore they are not excluding the people who do not know the candidates in their favorable rankings.

If you remove the percentage that does not know them and look at Strongly Favorable and Favorable you get:

* Huckabee 88%
* Romney 82%
* Barbour 82%
* Gingrich 81%
* Paul 78%
* Palin 77%
* Johnson 66%

The real interesting thing is how well Gary Johnson is doing there, he is a potentially incredible candidate with the ability to attract the libertarian and traditional republican votes combined, and would normally have a problem getting his recognition numbers up outside of having been two time Governor of New Mexico.
