Poll: Hillary Much Stronger With Dems Heading Into 2016 Than 2008

April 2, 2015 8:58 a.m.

Hillary Clinton is supported by a whopping 66 percent of registered Democrats for the presidential nomination, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll released Thursday.

Joe Biden (who is uncertain to run) and Elizabeth Warren (who has repeatedly said she won’t run) are tied for second place with 12 percent each.

Clinton is far stronger heading into the 2016 Democratic primary than she was at this stage of the 2008 election.

A March 2007 poll by CNN/ORC found her supported by her backed by 37 percent of Democrats, with Barack Obama behind with 22 percent, Al Gore winning 14 percent and John Edwards pulling 12 percent.
