The next presidential election is more than three years away, but early polling shows Hillary Rodham Clinton leading the Democratic pack by a landslide margin, with a whopping 63 per cent of Democrats telling pollsters that they would vote for the former first lady and Secretary of State.
Vice President Joe Biden came in second with 13 per cent support - barely one-fifth of Clinton's showing.
The GOP field is anyone's game, however, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie only garnering 15 per cent support among Republicans to narrowly lead the pack. He's followed by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz - all clustered within 8 percentage points. Clinton would beat Christie in a head-to-head matchup, the pollsters found, with 47 per cent favoring the former first lady and 41 per cent choosing Christie. She polls even better against Jeb Bush, with an 8-point margin, and against both Rubio and Paul, with a 12-point spread.
The McClatchy-Marist Poll surveyed 1,204 adults between July 15 and July 18. Eighty-one per cent of them are registered voters.
'Get ready for round two of Hillary Clinton as the inevitable,' Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, said in a statement.
Other Democrats in the poll, scraping the bottom of the barrel, included New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who polled 6 per cent and 1 per cent, respectively.

Chris Christie? How about a Republican?
We’re in Dry Gulch, and the most corrupt rancher around has no Lone Ranger and Tonto to stop her.
Will they step forward in time?
Hurricane Sandy Fluke will blow all the way to be Chief of Staff and Weiner’s wife will be Secretary of State.
These hypothetical polls now are meaningless....worthless.....
I think she’s a lock, flushing SlowJoe and Cuomo very early in the primary process.
But then again, who in Dec 2007 would believe that a guy named Baraq Hussein would be the POTUS-elect a year later.
especially with Christie
I think Christie is Hillary’s VP.
There will be a mediagasm over bipartisanship.
well duh, What about the General election after he and she battle out the Democrat primary?
If the GOP doesn’t go on a full-fledged assault on the STINKING media, 2016 is already over. Looks like the NSA will retain it’s ability to engage in election tampering for Hillary, anyway, thanks to the Republicans in the House.
Hillary Clinton and Christ Christie going “head to head.” That would be an ugly picture, indeed.
Christie is 0bama in a bigger suit.
We have to keep sending messages to the world. Should Princess Hillary win, a Latino liberal and/or a homosexual will win the Presidency.
Shame our side hasn’t figured it out yet that it really matters not who we run. The other side is not going to allow us to win. They cheat. Plain and simple.
And nobody stops them. That is why the RINO wing kisses O’s ass. They want to keep their job even if they are always the minority party.
... in the years to come.
In a Clinton vs Christie race, I’ll vote for the third party or write in Putin.
