Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Early Favorite In 2016, No Clear Republican Leader (Christie 21%, Ryan 16%)

DURHAM, N.H. It's a long time before New Hampshire's 2016 first-in-the-nation presidential primary, but a poll shows Democrats favoring Hillary Clinton and no clear Republican leader.
The WMUR Granite State Poll finds most Democrats and Republicans are undecided and no one's declared their candidacy. But if the primary were held today, 62 percent of likely Democratic voters would support Clinton, New Hampshire's 2008 primary winner.
Twenty-one percent of likely Republican primary voters would support New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan had 16 percent; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush had 10 percent.
The phone poll of 516 residents was conducted July 18-29. It had a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points overall and 7 percentage points among likely Republican and Democratic voters

No and hell no
I love how the media is pushing RINOs.
No Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin in this poll?
From The Red Star in Minneapolis?
That’s because they have no intention of allowing anybody but a big-government RINO to be on the list.
I sure wish they would give 2016 a rest. We’re going to play he!! just getting through 2013.
Thank you for this wonderful post. Fat Christie is a socialist sympathizer, Ryan is an illegal alien loving loser that fell from grace. They are going nowhere unless they repent ,on their knees for their political transgressions. This party will self destruct if it allows amnesty or obamacare funding in the House we elected. Want to bet?
No Clear Republican Leader
No need to worry, Porky Pig Rowe and the Republican establishment will come up with some senile old fart like Bob Dole and Juan McCain.
The race is Cruz’ to lose.
For the first time since Reagan, the RINO camp is split.
This is our chance, folks!
“I love how the media is pushing RINOs.”
Nominating Christie will kill what is left of the Republican Party. it will truly be an election where the Democrats win because conservatives stay home. If the Republicans decide to commit suicide by nominating Christie 2016 would be a good year for a new conservative party to field candidates nationally and at the local level. It might win a few local and state races. If it ran good candidates it would certainly be in a position to make major inroads in 2018 after two years of President Hillary.
I'm expecting the Dems to dig up another NOBODY from NOWHERE to run and replace Obozo.
Dear New Hampshire: you are annoying enough with your self-important, premature, overhyped primary. You have made a plethora of bad choices over the years resulting from your susceptibility to media suggestion and your vanity when your coffee-slurping locals believe their own press i.e. they alone are entitled to choose the next leader of the free world.
This system may have tradition behind it but it makes about as much sense as wearing swim trunks to the summit of Everest in terms of appropriate preparation for the task at hand.
All the Live Free Or Die stuff makes for a great tagline but in the end you have lumbered the rest of us with a surplus of squishy liberals with a few rare exceptions.
That said, any poll conducted by anyone at this stage is an otherwise empty exercise in name recognition similar to ‘most admired’ polls in which First Ladies are guaranteed to appear. In the case of NH it’s a self-serving reminder that they are first - but rarely sagacious in their choices.
Paul vs. Cruz and the winner takes all!
Remember back in Dec 07 when Hillary was a “lock” for the Dem nomination?
Then some unknown guy named Baraq Hussein from Kenya came in and stole the kishka.....
I will write in “Bozo the Clown” before Christie or Ryan.
NO MORE RINOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I my be wrong, but it’s my take the Left isn’t as thrilled with Hillary as the media would love us to think.
Obama is going to rub off on a lot of Democrats starting in 2014. By 2016, the loathing of this guy will all but destroy the Democrat party.
That response to the Obama appearance on the Leno show last night opened my yes. Out of hundreds of comments, on one I saw was even remotely neutral about Obama. No defenses, and hundreds of blistering negative comments.
This guy is not popular with anyone right now.
Hillary can’t pass the physical. You can love her. You can hate her. It doesn’t matter. She can’t pass the physical.
This early the polls are only reflecting name recognition.
True. At the same time, Rudy Giuliani was considered a “lock” for the GOP nomination.
By all rights, it’s Rimshot Joe Biden’s “turn” to be president.
I remember the smartest guy I know telling me in Jan 08 “there’s no way Americans are gonna vote for a guy named Baraq Hussein for President”
Hell, I don’t have the money, but if we we’re little with RINO’s I would run as a Independent just to keep the RINOS out. NO more friggin RINO’S and Karl Rove backed candidates!
I think Hillary will crush SlowJoe and Cuomo by March 2016.
But I was completely wrong in 2008. I didn’t realize that the Chicago political mob had the info on Arkancides and could blackmail the Clintons.
BJ and Hillary couldn’t use their vaunted private detective force to publicize the truth about Obama.
Seems to me that Hillary won’t have much to brag about on the campaign trail. Obama has been a failure and Americans are waking up to that fact and and Hillary is thoroughly complicit in that failure. After another 3 years of his “fundamental transformation of America”, I think Americans are going to be hesitant to vote for anyone promising to deliver more of the same.
Throw Trey Gowdy in there and see what happens.
I hope I'm wrong.
Check this vanity DU thread:
Why on Earth should we nominate a presidential candidate who voted for war with Iraq?

It was a colossal disaster, and completely avoidable. Most elected Democrats voted against war, but not the ones who wanted to look “presidential” - Hillary, Biden, Kerry, Edwards, and the rest of that crowd.
Looking “presidential” in exchange for hundreds of thousands of deaths.
Why would we trust one of these people with our future?
Do the anti-Clinton forces within the Democratic Party have anyone who could be even a half-way plausible opponent for the nomination in 2016? Hillary may have as much opposition as Obama had in 2012.
Given the demographic trends, I think you’re correct.
The only confounding factors I can see would be
1) markets finally puke on money creation making entitlements too expensive to continue at present levels
2) a 3rd party candidate (would have to be a liberal analog of Ross Perot, egotistical, famous and rich) lets us win with a plurality.
Bloomberg is one possibility, but he’s tight with the Clintons and would never oppose Hillary.
Ted Cruz will be star speaker at Iowa GOP dinner this fall
Hillary Clinton is a very ill old broad with more baggage than a railroad porter.
Sort of like announcing whats the best roadkill.
“Throw Trey Gowdy in there and see what happens.”
There is a real household name.
I think the Clinton machine can shred most all potential challengers.
Baraq had the “nuclear weapon” of the Chicago mob and was able to completely neutralize their most valuable asset. Ironic that Hillary had the FBI files but the Chicago mob had the scoop on Arkancides.
Can we survive such an economic system? Sure...depending on your value of "survive". While Europe certainly sees its share of economic crises, it's not as if they've seen their economies utterly collapse in the last 50 years. However, things that occur regularly in such countries such as crippling public sector strikes and massive redistribution of income are, I'm afraid, not too far in America's future.
I’m curious to see who Hussein will back in the next election: Her Horribleness OR Plugs Biden? It will be interesting.
I predict that Hillary will not live to see the year 2017.
Lately, she looks ravaged by disease. She doesn’t take as good care of herself as her lecher husband does. She drinks like a fish.
Her heart and liver will not hold out during the campaign in 2016.
yeah, and by then, the only real capitalist country will be communist China!
They've certainly discovered that making money is fun.
Double Tubs Christie?
Cruz is my Senator and I voted for him and donated to his Champaign.
Cruz’s father was naturalized in 2005. Cruz was born in Canada. Ted is NOT a natural born citizen and is not eligible to run for President.
Deal with it, RINOS.
