CNN Breaking News

A CNN/ORC International poll released Monday shows 65% of Democrats and independents who lean toward that party say they would likely back former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as their presidential nominee, if she decides to run. Of the other potential 2016 White House hopefuls, Vice President Joe Biden comes in a distant second at 10%.

The poll also indicates no GOP front-runner among the potential contenders. Seventeen percent of Republicans and independents who lean toward the GOP say they are likely to support New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Other possible GOP 2016 hopefuls, including Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Rand Paul, are not far behind.

According to the poll, only 8% of Republicans who consider themselves conservatives say they would be likely to back Christie, compared to 28% of self-described moderate Republicans. In the potential Democratic battle, the survey indicates Clinton rating higher with women than men. And Biden scores higher wit h voters age 50 and older than with those younger than 50.

The CNN poll was conducted by ORC International September 6-8, with 1,022 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error for Democratic and GOP primary questions is plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
