Poll: Hillary Tops in 2016 Race, Would Topple Top Republicans

Wednesday, 02 October 2013 10:04 AM EDT

Hillary Clinton has the most support of any potential Democratic candidate for the 2016 presidential sweepstakes and would defeat any of three Republican candidates tested in a poll released today.

The former secretary of state, 65, has the support of 61 percent of Democrats, according to the Quinnipiac University national poll.

In the Democratic field, Clinton tops Vice President Joseph Biden 61 percent to 11 percent, with 7 percent favoring U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and 2 percent supporting New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“As she watches the hand-to-hand political combat in Washington, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remains above the fray and the queen of the 2016 mountain,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Asked about the Republican field, 17 percent of those polled said they’d support Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, 13 percent were for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, 12 percent backed Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and 11 percent said they’d support former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin each had 10 percent.

In a head-to-head contest against Republicans, Clinton would defeat Christie 49 percent to 36 percent, Paul 53 percent to 36 percent, and Cruz 54 percent to 31 percent.

The survey conducted among 1,497 registered voters between Sept. 23-29 has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent.
