CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- A recent Quinnipiac University National Poll showed a relative tie between Chappaqua resident Hillary Rodham Clinton and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in a possible 2016 presidential race between the two. Neither has announced plans on a potential run yet.

The poll showed that 43 percent of Americans supported Christie while 42 percent backed Clinton. 

Clinton enjoys a much more sizable lead against other projected Republican candidates, including a 9 percentage point lead over Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and a 15 percentage point lead over Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, according to the national poll.

"It's a long way off and no one is officially a candidate yet, but the Hillary Clinton-Chris Christie race to the White House is neck-and-neck before the campaign even saddles up," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute said in a statement.

"Sen. Rand Paul, Vice President Joseph Biden, those other guys better get cracking or they might as well head back to the stables," he said.

According to the poll, 48 percent of independent voters said they would vote for Christie versus 32 percent for Clinton. 

Clinton, however, was stronger among women, beating Christie 48 percent to 39 percent, according to Quinnipiac.

If republicans don’t find a good candidate Hilary IS the next president! But, “AT THIS POINT, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!!!”
Democrats have figured out how to walk in lock step no matter how bad it is for the people. Republicans have too many factions within that have very different views of governing the country. The Democrats only have 2, liberal big controlling government’ers that only pretend to care about peoples freedom and the full out socialists.
I see Christie as another George W., and the dem’s have already painted Rand Paul into the “Crazy” libertarian corner. Maybe it’s time for the GOP to get someone like Dr. Ben Carson to be their guy and stop putting “sound bite” candidates up for the party.
.
Republicans have to start using the same tactics that the Democrats use, call them out as the socialists they are, not liberals. Start showing how they are really redistributing wealth not just from the “rich” people like they say, but show how every middle-class family is paying for it.
Obama-care is perfect example.
For the past 5 years I had a great plan that cost me $150.00 per year with my company’s retirement benefits. I just received notice that plan will not be available in 2014. The closest plan offered will have less coverage, more out of pocket and will cost me $1,675.00, thank you Mr. Obama!

Hopefully, American has grown weary of leftists, statists and incompetent progressives and is now poised to elect a constitutional conservative to lead us from tyranny.

media watcher:

The Benghazi issue is just the "tip" of the ice burg for Clinton; her lies and arrogant attitude will be front and center in her run for President.
The problem is who will the Republicans run against her and can they stop fighting each other long enough to make that important decision?

Activist Bill:

Clinton will win against any Republican. The sheep will follow her, believing all the promises she'll be making but has no intention of keeping.
