Clinton Wins Majority Support For 2016 Presidential Bid

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- A majority of Americans now back U. S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for a presidential bid in 2016, a latest nationwide poll showed on Wednesday.

The ABC News and Washington Post poll found that 57 percent of Americans say they will support Clinton to run for the president candidacy to succeed Barack Obama four years later while 37 percent oppose it.

A broad gender gap was shown in the poll when Clinton enjoys a stronger support among women. A total of 66 percent of women and 49 percent of men say yes to a Clinton presidential candidacy.

Clinton, who is expected to retire before Obama's second term, also closes out her diplomatic career with considerable approval and popularity.

The poll showed that 68 percent of Americans approve her work as Secretary of State, second only to Collin Powell among the last five on the position. Sixty-six percent of Americans hold a favorable view of her overall, a new high in her public career as the First Lady, U.S. Senator and the top U.S. diplomat in the Obama administration.

12. Oh I know you and I understand it

My point to people who are jumping on bandwagons now is no one has announced and probably won't until after the 2014 election.

For the 2008 election I made my choice about which campaign I'd support around a year and a half before the election and two months after the candidate announced (the candidate was Obama).

We still have a mid-term fight that is 23 months away in which we could win back the US House. I think it is foolish to throw all this stuff out about 2016 already. Christ let Obama finish his term in office before making him a lame duck.

5. I don't think so.

I believe the era of Clinton/Bush Family rule and Democratic "Third=Way" Politics is over. Seeking new liberal/populist blood.

10. and who was the poll leader in 2004 for the 2008 election?

In 2004 no one except for Illinois voters and a few die hard political junkies had any idea who Barack Obama was.

Hillary may indeed wind up as the nominee, but didn't almost everyone think she would win the nomination in 2008?
