Poll: Clinton Would Win Florida Over Bush, Rubio in 201 Thursday, 21 Mar 2013 08:59 AM By Lisa Barron Florida voters would favor Democrat Hillary Clinton by a wide margin over either former GOP Gov. Jeb Bush or GOP Sen. Marco Rubio in a presidential election if it were held today, according to new poll of state voters. The Quinnipiac University survey of 1,000 registered state voters taken March 13-18 put the former secretary of state ahead of Bush by a 51 percent to 40 percent margin and ahead of Rubio by 52 percent to 41 percent. We probably wont know for some time whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016. But if she decides to make the race, she begins with a sizable lead in a state that Republicans cannot win the White House without, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. While Clinton, who has consistently proven to be the strongest potential candidate in Quinnipiac national polls, has a whopping 93 percent to 5 percent favorability rating among Democrats in Florida, she is also viewed favorably by a respectable 26 percent of Republican voters. Equally significant, she has a 57 percent to 35 percent favorability rating among independents. Overall, Clinton was viewed more favorably by voters - 62 percent to 33 percent - than Bush and Rubio. Bush drew a 50 percent to 35 percent favorability rating, while Rubio received a 41 percent to 34 percent rating. In additional findings, the poll also revealed overwhelming support among Florida voters for the idea of mandatory universal background checks on people who want to buy guns, with 91 percent to 8 percent in favor. The survey also found that 51 percent of respondents favor tougher gun control laws, while 56 percent

A 2013 poll says who would win in 2016. It is pretty comical that anybody would bother even reporting such a ludicrous and irrelevant data point.
She’d lose to Rand Paul.
Hillary 2016: America’s Senior Sweetheart
I suspect she’l stomp SlowJoe and Cuomo in the primaries.
Hillary’s not going to run. She’s feeling older than her age. I think she’s ill and the Clinton machine is covering it up.
This is an attempt to shape opinion, not report it.
She is a total incompetent with no discernible talent in any area and a proven record of failure.
And yet, she would win.
CW-II, it’s in our future.
Live it, love it.
And looking it!
So, people would pick an out-of-the-closet liberal over a covert liberal. Why is anyone surprised?
We’ll see if younger democrats will let this tired old hag just take the nomination. When asked any serious quesitons she’ll fake a concussion relapse.
Lucifer himself would win if he had a (D) next to his name.....
Given the enormous popularity of Hillary, I’m leaning towards running an acceptable-to-the-FR-RINO hunters “True Conservative” in 2016 that centers their campaign on a total abortion ban in all circumstances, and no gay marriage, just so people can get it out of their system.
Then after they lose by 25 points we can run a real candidate in 2020. Of course, all 25 points of that loss will be blamed on Karl Rove somehow.
This poll also disproves the idea that hispanics would flock to Rubio.
Just remember that Cruz got a smaller share of the hispanic vote in Texas than Cornyn did a few years earlier.
Yeah, but that still means she has to campaign against them, right?
Her stratospheric numbers are because she’s a potential candidate, not an actual one.
Besides, she’s just one botched plastic surgery away from looking like Joan Rivers ...
The old cow needs to have a stroke or a heart attack. Better yet, is there a new xtra fast old timers she could catch?
Yeah 3 years is a long time.
If the inevitable money implosion happens before then, it’s anybody’s guess what happens.
In terms of male candidates Women tend to prefer the best-looking one.
There’s a strange like/hate relationship of women with attractive women; in a political context, I honestly think it helps Hillary with women if she becomes LESS attractive.
If Rand can survive the establishment republicans, you might be right. His libertarian tendancies and his dovish foreign policy would get him some votes from the left, or at least turn out the younger republicans. I do fear Karl Rove and the rest of the talking heads on Fox News would destroy him though. They, along with Wall Street, woild rather have Hillary since she is more willing to tolerate them earning income through graft and fraud.
