Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton Are Favorites for 2016, According to New Poll
The nation just went through a long, arduous, heated election cycle that felt almost as endless as standing in line for eight hours to vote.
Apparently Public Policy Polling went out and asked a bunch of people who they will vote for in four years RIGHT. NOW.
And, probably not surprising at all, our very own Marco Rubio tops the list for the GOPers, while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gets the nod for the Librulls.
According to the poll, Rubio leads New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 18 percent to 14 percent, with 475 Republican primary voters surveyed. That'll learn ya to hug Obama, Christie!
Rubes also leads former Mittington (remember him?) running mate Paul Ryan as well as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, which wasn't the case in early November.
Ryan and Bush have 12 percent support.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee came in with 11 percent support, because Jesus loves an underdog.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton blowed up the competition on the Democratic side, earning a 61 percent from the 454 Democratic primary voters surveyed.
The next contender after Hillary is Crazy Uncle Joe with just 12 percent.
The margin of error of the poll was plus or minus 4.6 percentage points for the Democratic primary voters and a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points for the Republican primary voters.
