Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has fallen below 50 percent for the first time against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in the latest Zogby Analytics poll, a development pollster John Zogby says is "particularly newsworthy."

Clinton is still comfortably ahead all of the potential GOP contenders in the poll taken May 21-22 of 902 likely voters and released on Tuesday:

Democrat Republican
Hillary Clinton Jeb Bush
49 32
   
Hillary Clinton Chris Christie
47 33
   
Hillary Clinton Rand Paul
51 34

"Right now, Mrs. Clinton is running against herself — that's the thing that we have to understand," Zogby told John Bachman and Francesca Page on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Wednesday.

"There's only one thing or two things, actually, that can stop Hillary Clinton in her tracks and that would be, not unexpectedly, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton."

The Zogby poll also found that President Barack Obama and Democrats have lost the edge they had on national security issues they had leading up to Obama's re-election bid in 2012, which Zogby explained are historically decisive issues.

Voters now have more confidence in Republicans in matters of national security, with 36 percent support compared to 25 percent who said they trust Democrats more. When it comes to foreign affairs and diplomacy, 33 percent of voters said they have confidence in the GOP to handle such matters versus 29 percent who said that Democrats are more capable.

Story continues below video.


Thirty percent of women and 31 percent of young voters also said they trust Republicans with national security issues versus 26 percent of women and 24 percent of young voters who trust Democrats.

"The fact that number one, you have overall Democrats now losing on these two issues, but more importantly losing on two key demographics, women who are expected to vote Democrat and younger voters who have been voting Democrat since Barack Obama in 2008 — you've got something that could be a leveling issue for Republicans — could help them in 2014 and 2016," Zogby told Newsmax.
