hillary & christie 2

Republican voters nationwide want the man who lost the 2012 presidential bid Mitt Romney to have another go at it, giving him the top position at 19 percent in an early Quinnipiac University national poll looking at the 2016 presidential race.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is in second place, with 11 percent, followed by New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie and Dr. Ben Carson with 8 percent each.

That’s it, no other Republican tops 6 percent, with a whopping 16 percent undecided.

With Romney not in the game, Jeb Bush leads with 14 percent, followed by Christie at 11 percent, Carson at 9 percent and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 8 percent—and in that case, an even bigger crowd, 19 percent, are undecided.

Just the way it was back in 2007, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is way ahead of everyone else in the Democratic field, with 57 percent, followed by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 13 percent and Vice President Joseph Biden at 9 percent. No other candidate scored above 4 percent and this situation leaves 14 percent undecided.

With Clinton out of the race, Biden gets 34 percent, followed by Warren with 25 percent.

Romney runs best against Clinton in a general election, taking 45 percent to her 44 percent.

And now the fun part: the matchups:

  • Clinton gets 43 percent to Christie’s 42 percent
  • Clinton tops Paul 46 – 41 percent
  • Clinton beats Mike Huckabee 46 – 41 percent
  • Clinton tops Jeb Bush 46 – 41 percent
  • Clinton gets 46 percent to 42 percent for Paul Ryan
  • Clinton beats Ted Cruz 48 – 37 percent

There you have it. Now go baste your turkey and get the stuffing ready, and remember—none of this is real. The future is best left where it is…
