Hillary Way Out Front in 2016 Iowa Presidential Poll

They're still counting votes in Florida and already we're looking at Iowa polls. The Public Policy Poll was taken just days before the election and, of course, it's a piece of cake if you're name is Hillary Rodham Clinton:

The PPP poll, which was shared exclusively with POLITICO, shows Clinton taking 58 percent of the Iowa vote in a hypothetical presidential run. Vice President Joe Biden trails far behind at 17 percent, followed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at 6 percent and Massachusetts Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren at 3 percent. None of the other Democrats tested – Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner – cracked 1 percent in the poll... 

From the list of pols PPP tested, Biden and O’Malley are viewed as most likely to run for the White House in four years. Clinton has said she has no intention of running for president, though many in the party believe she might change her mind. Warren has ruled out a White House bid, but hope springs eternal among her liberal fan base.
