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.
