At this point, Hillary Clinton’s biggest challenger appears to be the current Vice President, Joe Biden. A lot can change in a year but that is a very high number to start out with. Compare this to the Republican side where some polls show the high water mark at 20% for a nominee due to the difference of opinions within the party.

Report from McClatchyDC:

At this early stage for the 2016 presidential campaign, it’s Hillary’s world, and everyone else just lives in it.

Hillary Clinton dominates the potential field of candidates for the Democratic nomination by huge margins, with a more than 5-to-1 advantage over her nearest rival and more than doubling the support of everyone else combined, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll. The Republican race is wide open, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slightly ahead. And Clinton has an edge or outright lead over any of them.

“It’s Hillary versus the pack for the nomination,” said Lee Miringoff, director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion in New York, which conducted the poll.

“There is no strong contender against her,” he said. “She doesn’t want to use the word inevitable, but these numbers are as wide as they can get. She’s jogging around the track by herself.”

The former first lady, senator and secretary of state enjoys lopsided support among Democrats and Democratic-leading independents:

Clinton, 65 percent.
Vice President Joe Biden, 12 percent.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, 9 percent.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York, 3 percent.
Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland, 1 percent.

Really? Twelve percent for the sitting vice president? I’m betting Biden is feeling a little unwanted by these numbers. Elizabeth Warren has already stated she is not running in 2016 so give part of her 9% to Biden or Cuomo?


  1. Clinton will not be jailed for the Benghazi murders she set up and the MSM elects the President and several other leaders, so they will elect the first woman president.

    • samreusser — woman?

      someone posted this a long time ago, and it still cracks me up:

      “Hillary Clinton is an evil man”.

      you are right — the bitch of benghazi won’t be jailed, cause the dems got nobody else…..

  2. I think the numbers are pretty meaningless at this point. NONE of these people have said they’d run, and except for those of us here, the public doesn’t care.

    I would bet my money on someone new to catch the public’s imagination, the way Obama seemed to come from nowhere. And, of course, if Hillary blows her second chance as “frontrunner,” she’s done. Her age is already becoming an issue.

    The GOP prospects are all kids. My guess is that Dems will find their own kids to talk about. So on the Dem side, the vote will be for “none of the above.”

  3. Hillary is unlikely to run in 2016.

    She is the one that could directly expose Obama’s order to stand down in Benghazi — so the Arabic Scholar that was the US Ambassador there gets killed, per Obama’s desire.

    Watch aging Hillary somehow meet with an accident….usually a heart attack…in such cases.

    Heil Obama — our Leader for All Time!

      • What are you talking about Goethe – have you even listened to any of the senate hearings – are you implying that only the Ambassador and Assistant would have been killed and not the two marine CIA. plus the fact nobody responded for more than 10 hours and the wrong to no security in place for months before! Goethe – you are flat showing your ignorance and subjectivity to NBC and CNN !!!!!

        • Sam: Again, I don’t watch NBC or CNN. I don’t have a TV. And when I do see TV when I’m out, I’m glad I don’t!

          Anyway, why did the two guards die? Because they disobeyed orders, stood out in the open, and invited attack. The rest obeyed, went into the annex, and were safe.

          That being the case, it appears to me that “standing down” was the appropriate order, which is the issue we are debating here.

          There are legitimate Benghazi issues that are being obscured, such as whether the compound was a CIA operation, and whether they were storing and funneling arms to Syria, in some sort of Iran-Contra-like operation.

          • Goethe go look the real stories – not your MSM crap. the ambassador and asst. were and going to .be killed by al Qaeda regardless of Obama’s agreement with to move arms and just capture Stevens.

            Just like Iraq – the MSM said chemical, biological, or nuclear WMDs – nope not now or in the past – and now there are thots that al Qaeda in Libya was who actually used the Chem WMD’s. Yo hoo, ho let’s protect Democrats politics under all circumstances and deal death blows to all Republican politics at all costs!!!!!!

            • Sam: As I say, I have no direct MSM input. You’re the one who keeps citing MSM. When I hear a story, I try to find primary sources–like the actual text of Castro’s speech. It was impossible to find in the MSM. I always have a lot more luck with British sources.

              And you are showing a partisan fetish. How on earth did you get a pro-Democrat bent from my saying that there should be an investigation of possible illegal arms movements to Syria?? Even comparing it to Iran-Contra!

              And I have no idea what you’re talking about regarding chemical weapons being used in Libya. Did I miss a story of chems being used in LIbya??

            • Goethe – i am definitely biased towards Conservatism, which except pure RINOs is the Pub party. I am a Tea Party and a Libertarian. Except for Tea Party members trying to force Christianity, I like most of the ideology. Liberalism in general and Democrats push toward Monarchy, Communism, and Socialism – which is a dichotomy for them – liberal originally was to be free.

              RE: Chemical WMD – I meant to say Syria, no Libya – Brain fart. And Benghazi was a failed action plan that BO and CIA had with Egypt, Pakistan, Libya al Qaeda, Syria, involving arms trade and CAPTURING Stevens. If you have relatives over there, correspond and see what they tell you – however emailing over there may get you involved with the NSA. 🙂 🙂
