PPP: Clinton is her party’s choice for Presidential nominee at 61% to Biden’s 12%

December 6, 2012

Among Democrats, Hillary Clinton is the clear favorite with 86/10 favorability; and second favorite is Joe Biden at 80/14. Clinton is her party’s choice for Presidential nominee at 61% to Biden’s 12%. On the issue of same-sex marriage, Democrats support the measure 64/31.

Paul Ryan, Mike Huckabee and Condoleezza Rice were favored most among Republicans at 74/15, 73/15 and 73/18 respectively. Even though Marco Rubio’s favorability ranks fourth (62/11), he is the GOP favorite for 2016 at 18%. Christie was runner up with14% and tied for third were Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan with 12% preference each. Santorum was the least favorite with 4% wanting to see him as their 2016 nominee. Republicans would also like to see RNC Chair Reince Priebus be replaced 37/20.

When asked about their ideology, Democrats were twice as likely to be “moderate” as Republicans 32/16. 20% of Democrats said they were “very liberal” to 39% of GOP respondents who were “very conservative”.

“Hillary Clinton is the clear choice of Democratic voters while opinions on the Republican side are pretty muddled,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Clearly Marco Rubio’s debut on the national stage at the GOP convention was a big hit though.”

1. Ahh... While I can readily get behind Hillary, I do like my Joe too...

'Sort of surprised he's polling so low.. Perhaps that is more significant to the support for Hillary than it is any knock on Biden...

2. The poll shows that Biden's approval numbers among Democrats are almost as high as Hillary's

So they are both well-liked among the party.

It's just that when it comes time to choosing a President, Hillary would be the clear favorite.

3. The money quote:

"Democrats were twice as likely to be “moderate” as Republicans 32/16. 20% of Democrats said they were “very liberal”


This explains a lot of the histrionics we see here at DU, and other ports of the leftosphere. I've maintained that "liberals" are a small contingent of the party, but some seem to think they are the only demo that matters. I suspect this is the reason we're seeing so many third party polls popping up here. Third parties should go off and do their own thing.

We need to move on to new faces and new ideas. Hillary isn't the future.

7. does she have real chance of wining?

I hate to say this but i think even more people would have a problem with a woman president than people who have a problem with a black president. The Clintons are corporate dems and we need a progressive. I know a lot things can change from now to 2016 but the rep, will probably put up christie or jeb bush.

8. Wasn't the 2008 election supposed to be Hillary vs. Rudy?

In the end, we'll decide who we pick, not the stupid polls.

18. OH believe me, I am fine with that..

I just thought Hillary was slightly better.

No worries. Obama was and IS better than McCantster or Rumknees.

She will win 2016. And transform ObamaCare into what it needs to BE - UNIVERSAL SYSTEM CARE!!! Outlaw the Insurance Cos!

17. LOL! And some wonder why she lost

the nomination. Yeah if Hillary was in the white house we would have universal healthcare. Oh wait...

And I have some bad news for you. Hillary knows where her bread is buttered. She is going to run the same campaign as Obama, using as many of the same people as she can get. She will embrace his presidency. And Barack will stump for her. So you better get used to seeing them together and cuddly and Hillary sticking close to his strategy and language.

I like Hillary. But I really can't stand some of her supporters.

15. I prefer Hillary for president, but Biden is a nice guy.

I just don't think that he would be the party's choice in 2016. He barely got a handful of votes in 2008. If Hillary runs, I don't see Biden running.
