Democrats really, really want Hillary Clinton to run for president, poll shows

Posted: February 26, 2014 in News

An overwhelming majority of Democrats want Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016.

More than 80 percent of Democrats surveyed said they would like the former secretary of state to run, while 13 percent would not, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll released Wednesday. Five percent were undecided. A majority of independents (52 percent) said they would support a Clinton candidacy as well.

The same poll found that a minority (about 40 percent) of Democrats want Vice President Joe Biden to run, while just 22 percent of Democrats said they want Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren to enter the race. (Some 56 percent said they don’t know enough about Warren to decide.)

On the Republican side, about 40 percent said they would like to see former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul run for president.
