Exclusive: Clinton Would Dominate 2016 Iowa Caucuses (Hillary 56% Biden 17%, Cuomo 6%)
Politico.com ^ | 11/8/12 4:36 PM EST | By ALEXANDER BURNS

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 O’Malley, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner – cracked 1 percent in the poll.

If Clinton doesn’t 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 Warren’s 13 percent, with 46 percent of voters unsure who they’d 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.

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.

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.

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...”

Geriatic politics...

and Biden too even older ???

are there no young men or women in Washington or elsewhere ???

It doesn't matter if Satan himself is the Candidate, if he has the (D) next to his name, Unions, Blacks, Hispanics, Sex Deviates, Felons, and Fluking women will vote for the (D), and keep the handouts coming (at your Expense, of course).

Deal with it.

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.

I remember that about 2006 it seemed inevitable that she would be the nominee in 2008.

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.

Typo in that last message.

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.

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.

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 >
