CNN’s new poll has Hillary Clinton way ahead in the Democratic primaries for 2016:
Sixty-three percent of Democrats and independents who lean towards the Democratic Party say the former secretary of state, who also served as senator from New York and first lady, would be their choice for the party’s nomination, with Biden a distant second at 12%. Freshman Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a favorite of many progressives, stands at 7%, with New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo at 5% and two-term Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, another possible candidate, at 2%.
If Hillary Clinton doesn’t run, then Biden leads with 43%. In that situation, Warren would have 17% and Cuomo 15%. O’Malley only climbs to 6% if Clinton doesn’t run.
