Hillary Clinton is more popular than other national politicians including President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Marco Rubio, a poll released Friday showed.
According to a survey from Quinnipiac University, the former secretary of state bests a slew of leading national figures when it comes to popularity. Clinton has a 61 - 34 percent favorability rating among American voters, the poll said, while her former boss, Obama, clocks in at 51 - 46 percent favorability.
Clinton, considered a top choice for the 2016 Democratic presidential nod, also outpaces other possible presidential contenders on both sides of the aisle. Bidenís favorability rating comes in at 46 - 41 percent and Rubio (R-Fla), who will deliver the GOP response to next weekís State of the Union, comes in at 27 - 15 percent favorability, with 57 percent of those surveyed saying they donít know enough.
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the 2012 vice presidential nominee, has a favorability rating of 34 - 36 percent, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush stacks up at 25 - 29 percent favorability, with 45 percent who donít know enough about him to form an opinion.
You think the repubs have anyone with Obama's level of charisma to beat her?
Sad choices on both side, eh?
Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked. --- Lord Chesterfield
Well looky who's in the middle of this line-up of the usual suspects!! Leon Panetta didn't exactly make her look like the sharpest knife in the drawer yesterday while testifying to Congress about Obama's Benghazi Murder Scandal!
