He may be lauded as “one of history’s best vice presidents ever,” but Joe Biden is not feeling the love in the early caucus state of Iowa.
Just 29 percent of Iowans think the potential 2016 candidate would make a good president, compared to 62 percent who believe he would not, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fares better in the same hypothetical matchup, with 53 percent of Iowa voters who believe she would make a good president, compared to 42 percent would think she would not.
The Quinnipiac poll conducted Dec. 10 – 15 surveyed 1,617 registered voters and has a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points.
