Hillary Clinton leads Jeb Bush in a hypothetical matchup
MAY 02, 2014 03:27  
A poll found that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton leads former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, 35 percent to 41 percent in a hypothetical presidential race in 2016.

The poll found that Clinton뭩 commanding position is fueled by large leads over Bush with female, non-white and young voters, according to the Washington Post on Wednesday. The Washington Post ABC News poll was conducted among 1,000 American voters for three days from last Thursday.

"Non-white voters overwhelmingly favor Clinton over Bush, 74 percent to 20 percent. Clinton also holds substantial leads among women (59 percent to 36 percent) and among voters between ages 18 and 39 (61 percent to 33 percent)... Bush has a slight lead to Clinton, 49 percent to 45 percent, among white voters," according to the Washington Post.

The poll found that their 밼amily name would not weigh down Clinton and Bush as the competition is likely to be a battle between the Clintons and the Bushes. The newspaper reported, "Sixty-six percent of all Americans say they view the Clinton family favorably, while 54 percent have a favorable opinion of the Bushes."

While Clinton is the clear-front-runner on the Democratic side, Bush has many competitors on the Republican side. Bush and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul share the top ranking at 14 percent, respectively among Republican and GOP-leaning independents. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee runs third at 13 percent, followed by Rep. Paul Ryan at 11 percent and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 10 percent.
