PPP Poll: Rand Paul, Hillary Clinton atop New Hampshire 2016Submitted by bobbyw24 on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 08:58
Sen. Rand Paul is the frontrunner in a hypothetical New Hampshire GOP primary, though Hillary Clinton would beat him in a general election after scoring a landslide victory in a Democratic primary if she jumped in, a new poll says.
According to a survey posted on Thursday from Public Policy Polling, Paul (R-Ky.) is the favorite for the Republican 2016 nod, with 28 percent of those polled picking him. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) earned 25 percent of the vote; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was favored by 14 percent; 11 percent were unsure or wanted another option, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) each got 7 percent.
