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.
And, Cruz is more conservative than Cornyn.
Youth might be our best weapon.
Hillary and SlowJoe will be in their 70s.
Wouldn’t worry about it. I have a feeling that Benghazi is going to destroy Clinton. There are efforts by several hacking groups to expose Clinton for the liar she is, and I believe they’re going to succeed.
It just takes one email demonstrating a profound lack of empathy or care leaked to the right media outlet to turn her into a political dead zone.
“Lucifer himself would win if he had a (D) next to his name.....”
Hillary has suffered two stokes over the last few years. The last being much more serious than was known in the general public. She will be lucky to be alive in 2016, let alone able to face the rigors of a 24/7 campaign.
Concentrate on veto-proof majorities in the House and Senate. Then it doesn’t matter what Democrat is in the White House, because the Repubicans cannot win a national election anymore. The MSM just won’t allow it.
I’ll say it again.. no male will defeat Evita.
Our own (p)resident is advocating killing americans here at home and he is still a rock star among voters. You think events that happened half the world away would sway these idiots???
Time to take on Clinton now. Attack! No more of this waiting or have we not learned that to attack and discredit early is the only way to win elections.
I do not think anyone is surprised. The way I see it the far left has so many hooked on the freebies that they refuse to ever work. If they do work again, it will be to get qualified for UI again to kick back for another 90 weeks. Hell, some see section 8 housing, EBT cards, free cell phones, plus much more as the promised land.In Jamestown,VA we tried this socialism crap back in the 1600’s. The able bodied refused to work as long as they got food. They get a helluva lot more then food now to sit on their duffs and vote Dem.
“And, Cruz is more conservative than Cornyn.”
Exactly. And most hispanics are big government socialists. That’s just the way it is. They will keep voting democrat no matter what.
Republicans will need to attract young libertarians if they want to win.
Because she was a liar, Zeifman said in an interview last week. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.
Yeah, I think it is slightly more than even money that she won’t even be above ground by 2016. She has something seriously wrong going on...
“Shed lose to Rand Paul.”
I don’t think so... She should, just as Obama should have lost, but the stupid voters will vote for the first woman president just as they voted for the black one.
If Clinton runs the only way we have a chance is to run a woman candidate.
Florida has already gone past the minority demographic tipping point. Like California, it will now always go to the Democrats in Presidential races.
If the RINOS in our party, including Rand Paul, are able to push through Amnesty, we’re done anyway and the GOP might as well not field a candidate.
I’ll put $1000 down right now that either of them would win FL by at least 500,000 over Hillary or any Dem.
I’d like to say it’s bull sh!t, but Florida is a blue state now.
Rick Scott is also going to lose, and rightly so.
He’s done such a piss poor job that he is trailing Charlie Crist(Whore) by 12%, and he is trailing every other major dem candidate too.
I hope West decides to run for gov, otherwise it’s going to get worse.
Florida has one Democrat elected statewide, and only because he’s an astronaut. In 2010, we elected an 80% Republican House and big Senate majority, too. Our 2012 election is no indication of our state’s political environment. We should have won FL by a descent margin. The difference in campaign organization made a huge difference in November here...probably the only state where it was clearly the difference (VA might be the only other). We simply were outgunned on the ground.
No, that's not what I said.
What I said is that a candidate that makes a complete ban on all abortions in all circumstances, and a complete ban on gay marriage the CENTERPIECE of their campaign would lose in 2016, and any US Presidential election in the next 1,000 years.
I ASSURE you that any candidate with the full approval of the FR RINO police would have lost far worse than Romney or McCain in those elections, and the same would happen in 2016.
I’m inclined to support an experiment to prove this in 2016, as I noted, but the problem is after such a candidate gets crushed, the loss would be blamed on Karl Rove and not the candidate.
In fact, if the Dems get all the double-dipper absentee ballots in from Nooyawk, and Joisey, not to mention Michigan and Ohio,extend the voting period to 3 months, register more illegal aliens and give them absentee ballots, keep the vans going back and forth from the black churches after their people have filled in their multiple ballots, and carefully register the dead and throw in their absentees, suppress the military vote, and if all else fails, go to fake chads and the creation of virtual families, I shouldn't be at all surprised if Raoul Castro beats Bush and the constitutionally ineligible Rubio in Floriduh.
Must be the heat. This place is the worst vote fraud state anywhere. Democracy here is truly The Tyranny of the Stupid. And the Republicans, who acquiesced in giving the fraudsters more time to figure out exactly how many votes to steal and manufacture
Reagan proved that people will vote for a candidate they perceive will be a good leader, even if they disagree with them on the issues.
