With all the talk of Elizabeth Warren or Jim Webb giving Hillary Clinton a run in 2016, it’s easy to lose focus on just how lopsided the polling picture is on the Democratic side. The current snapshot shows Hillary leading the Democratic nomination with 68%, a full 57% higher than her closest opponent.

Report from The Hill:

Hillary Clinton holds a massive lead over Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in a new poll released by CNN.

The CNN/ORC poll released Sunday finds that Clinton leads by 57 percentage points, 66 percent to 9 percent, over Warren. That lead is essentially unchanged from a CNN poll in November, when Clinton was up 65 percent to 10 percent.

Warren insists she is not running, despite an effort by liberal groups like MoveOn.org to convince her to run.
Vice President Biden, who is also uncertain to run, comes in next, at 8 percent. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is looking to challenge Clinton from the left, gets 3 percent.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and former Sen. Jim Webb (Va.), all get 1 percent.

That’s a full two-thirds of Democrats giving support to Hillary Clinton. I’m not sure how her would-be primary opponents can chip away at that lead. For starters, she’s a known entity. Democrats who support her know what they’re getting and I highly doubt that Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden will reveal anything that turns her supports off in a meaningful way.

  1. Most people are not like us. They don’t care about an election that’s almost two years away. Hillary’s been running for about ten years, so she’s the only Dem candidate most people could identify.

    I think things will change when the public begins to care. Also, Hillary has a record of stumbling.

    In addition, being well known also means higher negative numbers.

    In a poll a few months ago, her positive rating among independents was 40%, but her negative rating was 35%. Pretty much a draw.
    And negative numbers are harder to change.

  2. It will be interesting to see if the liberal M.S.M. keeps Die H√ľndin cocooned like B.O. or if they will un-protect her and let her do nothing SecState (except kill Americans) tenure illuminate & blast her like they would a Republican. Never has someone so populace proven to be such an empty suit. —– Still the MSM will get her elected. And ’16 -> ’20 will finish taking us to be a second rate nation, on the verge of financial ruin and the biggest Candy Asses in the whole wide word.

    I’m gonna be “Home / Heaven” praying for “mine” to man up and kick some major anti-American ASS. Love to exert some of The Source’s energy and interfere with some of the Du-fuses bad for our country.
