Posted on 11/11/2012 10:54:15 AM PST by drewh
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would start out as a dominant favorite in the 2016 Iowa caucuses if she chooses to run for president, a new survey from Public Policy Polling finds.
The PPP poll, which was shared exclusively with POLITICO, shows Clinton taking 58 percent of the Iowa vote in a hypothetical presidential run. Vice President Joe Biden trails far behind at 17 percent, followed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at 6 percent and Massachusetts Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren at 3 percent.
None of the other Democrats tested Maryland Gov. Martin OMalley, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner cracked 1 percent in the poll.
If Clinton doesnt run, Biden would jump into the lead with a less-commanding 40 percent of the vote, with Cuomo rising to 14 percent and Warren up to 9 percent. In the event that neither Clinton nor Biden runs, Cuomo draws 30 percent to Warrens 13 percent, with 46 percent of voters unsure who theyd support.
As one would expect, Clinton and Biden are by far the best-known and best-liked of the Democrats potential 2016 field. Both are universally known and have approximately equal favorability ratings: Clinton gets a positive response from 86 percent of Democrats and a negative response from 11 percent. For Biden, those numbers are 85 percent positive, 15 percent negative.
But the big picture here speaks for itself: Clinton looms over the Democratic presidential field and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Dictators don’t do elections.
But thanks for acting like we still live in a Republic. :)
Biden 17% are you nuts????
Yes they do. They just are the only name on the ballot.
And Faux-a-hontas getting 3% already? I guess the mansteam media has their veep choice for Hilly already pciked out...
great, just what we need an old well weathered and leathered lizard from the Ol’ Bubba Dew Drop Inn quartet. The coalitions that vote in decadence and decay will love Hil.
Hillbillary is already the rat nominee for 2016, no need to hold a primary.
She’s taking off the next four years to diet, exercise, get a face lift and raise money.
If she runs, she’ll win because all the STUPID females who voted Obozo in will vote her in, first woman, blah, blah, blah...I don’t want to watch it happen, another Clinton and 2 terms of Obozo, I think I’ll go live in a cave somewhere.
And that is why the GOP had better force her under oath, to catch her
Lies, denials etc about Benghazi. End her career NOW
I don’t click Politico. They are an appendage of the DNC.
Your right they are! But who gives a rats behind about who is running now or not!!!!
You said it much better than I could...
“I don’t click Politico.”
High-five! I’m careful with my clicks, too. A click on a liberal website or newspaper means advertising dollars for them. I just freeze them out.
No chance for Hillary with Obama wanting the 3rd term...
She truly is a ‘Teflon Beotch,’ isn’t she? *SHUDDER*
Sadly I’ve already resigned myself to the fact Hillary will win the next election. That’s pretty much a no-brainer..
I plan to trash you until your creamed and your walker fails holding you up..and they have to use a fork lift to pick you up...
sick of being shove around by Liberals and DemocRATS.
That’s one good reason and another is don’t take propaganda in because it works. Garbage in, garbage out.
Hillie and Willie
two 70 year old candidates for POTUS ???
Now that would be an “exciting” trio of debates in Oct 2016
a real yawn...
Willie still talking about ‘his’ Olympics and Hillie her travels...
each one counting the others wrinkles and recording them in their TV ads
“She has more wrinkles than me”
“He lies !!! Hes the one with all the wrinkles and his hair is fallen out...”
“DONT touch the Hair...”
and Biden too even older ???
are there no young men or women in Washington or elsewhere ???
What about Moochelle?
Deal with it.
I don’t think there will ever be another democrat elected POTUS...not after what this guy is doing!
You forgot to count obama. You don’t really think he’ll just fade away in 2016, do you? By then, he’ll have complete control of everything, elections will be cancelled and america will be taken over by a coup of idiots..
Hillary will be our next president and likely we will be unable to do anything about that. It’s all about creative fraud now. Doesn’t metter who we run against her. After 2004 and the election “Bush stold from Gore” they were determined not to lose the White House again. Electronic voting must end and paper ballots replace it with a checklist backup. Counties need to share lists to purge duplicate voters.
Hitlary can take a shot at becoming the second ‘female’ president - when Valerie Jarrett decides to retire.
OMG! Make it stop! Can we quit talking about 2016 already???
Exactly...we are paying their salaries. Maybe it is time to ask Jim to quit allowing links to liberal websites...
Are we really going to keep playing these games. Hunger Games was child’s play next to the manipulation we endure by the media and pollsters over elections.
She will be sitting in a jail cell before that.
If the Obama administration wants to prevent her from being the nominee in 2012, they can see to it that she gets the blame for Benghazi. Biden is a joke--his only chance of being the nominee in 2016 is if he is the incumbent President. Cuomo's prospects haven't been enhanced by Sandy.
My guess is some other self-important Democrat politicians will take a look at those names and decide that they have a shot at winning it all in 2016.
Obviously I meant to say that Obama & Co. may try to prevent Hillary from winning the nomination in 2016.
As long as she is healthy, Hillary! is President for the next four years for sure, and almost definitely the next eight.
Sad thing is, as ultra-liberal as she is, she will be an overwhelming improvement over the Kenyan.
John-boy Edwards will be fully rehabilitated and ready to go by 2016. Rielle will make a great FLOTUS.
Yep. You won't see any conservatives or (R)s until the whole ponzi scheme collapses entirely.
If Hillary wants to be president in 2016, she`ll win against anyone put up against her on the GOP side. Two-thirds of the country loves her.
someone remind the world she was born in 1947, at election time she will need to have run for 18 months and be 69 on election day. Reagan was the oldtest person to be elected at 69, what are the odds Hilalry wants to be a 70 year old president?
Obama has another four years to bloat the federal bureaucracy by giving jobs to his people. That’s the Chicago Way. Throw amnesty on top of that and it doesn’t matter who they run. A Republican won’t have a chance. This was the last chance before reaching the topping point.
I bet Obama after 2016 becomes Head of the UN...now that frankly scares the crap out of me.....
The next 4 years are not over yet and these idiots are talking about Hillary and biden. Not to worry voter fraud will shoo you in in 2016. The’re will be no resistance, BEACUASE THERE IS NO RESISTANCE NOW!!!!!!
female president - when Valerie Jarrett decides to retire.
As of now, Valerie’s birth certificate shows she was born in IRAN. Subject to change, if necessary!
Don’t forget Jerry Sandusky. Yeah, I know he is a convicted felon and in prison, but all he did is help those little boys discover their true sexuality. It is just a matter of time before BO comes out of the closet and pardons him. < / sarcasm >
