Poll: Clinton Favored In 2016 In Iowa

WASHINGTON, (UPI) — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be a big favorite in the 2016 Iowa Democratic caucuses if she runs for president, a poll indicated.

Clinton would capture 58 percent of the Iowa vote in a hypothetical run, results of the Politico-Public Policy Polling released Thursday indicated.

Clinton, 65, has said she would not remain as the country’s top diplomat during President Obama’s second term and has denied any interest in seeking the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination again. She ran against Obama during the 2008 party primaries.

The poll indicated Vice President Joe Biden was well behind Clinton at 17 percent, followed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at 6 percent and Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren at 3 percent.

Other Democrats tested — governors Martin O’Malley of Maryland, Brian Schweitzer of Montana and Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner — drew less than 1 percent of support in the poll.

If Clinton doesn’t run, Biden would claim the top spot with 40 percent of the vote, Cuomo would rise to 14 percent and Warren would move up to 9 percent, results indicated. If neither Clinton nor Biden runs, Cuomo draws 30 percent and Warren pulls 13 percent, with 46 percent of voters saying they would be unsure about who they’d support.

Results are based on a telephone survey of 391 Iowa Democrats conducted Saturday and Sunday. No margin of error was given.

    THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE IN 2016 NEEDS TO BE:

    I). ONE-HUNDRED PERCENT “PRO-LIFE” – NO EXCEPTIONS. AND, STRONGLY SUPPORTIVE OF OVERTURNING “Roe-vs-Wade;”
    II). ONE-HUNDRED PERCENT OPPOSED TO A NATIONAL LEGALIZATION OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE – NO “FLIP-FLOPPING;”
    III). IN STRONG SUPPORT OF ENFORCEMENT OF NATIONAL LAWS BANNING MARIJUANA USE. AND, DOING “FOLLOW-UP CHECKS” ON STATES LIKE, COLORADO AND WASHINGTON; AND,
    IV). IN STRONG SUPPORT OF PROSECUTING THOSE WHO COMMIT WELFARE FRAUD.

    YES – THE DEMOGRAPHY OF THIS NATION IS CHANGING AND SUPPORTS MULTI-ETHNIC VALUES. BUT, IF A CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE SUPPORTS THE AFOREMENTIONED IDEAS, CITIZENS WOULD KNOW WHERE REPUBLICANS STAND AND THEY WOULD BE MORE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT VOTING.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton IS NOT THE ANSWER.

    I don’t smoke weed but I would rather have a toker for a next door neighbor than a bunch of drunks.If you ever look up the stats on how much the drinkers of America cost our economy in production, deaths civil disorder the burden to our justice system, medical costs and so on and compared to pot smoking.We would all be up in arms and legalize pot and ban alcohol.

    Hillary, would have to be a Conservative Republican to get my vote

    CAH you are so right. The 2016 republican candidate should be like you say on his positions. I would have included she , but both of us know full well the republicans will never choose a woman as the lead on the ticket. No matter because if they take the stand you want them to take it will be Clinton by a landslide. When will you extreamist realize that extreamism is a big reason Romney lost. Trying to be someone he was not. An extreamist/right winger.
