Hillary Beats 2016 GOP Presidential Contenders in Red State Georgia: Poll

If Hillary runs in 2016, there might not be any red states!  Hillary Clinton beats GOP stars Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio in the traditionally red state of Georgia according to Public Policy Polling. 

If Hillary runs, the 2016 presidential race will be a wipeout!

Hillary Clinton is such a formidable political force that she'd begin a 2016 presidential race ahead of Republican contenders even in, of all places, deep-red Georgia, according to a new poll.

The survey by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Clinton leading Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio 49% to 46% in the Peach State. She also tops Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, last year's GOP vice presidential nominee, 50 percent to 45 percent, according to the poll. Clinton has strong approval ratings for a Democrat in the conservative state, with 49% of voters viewing her favorably and 44% viewing her unfavorably.

 "I don't know that anybody would run against Hillary," Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told BuzzFeed this week. "If she runs, she clears the field. … Once we get through the 2014 election, that's when it starts moving. I think she's gonna make a decision at that time about what she'll do."
