Via PollingReport.com comes the latest round of monthly head-to-head polling matching up Hillary Clinton versus the most likely Republican candidates. It ain't pretty. After Bridgegate, the candidate who comes closest to beating Clinton is Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). Clinton still beats Ryan by fifteen points, which is the generally accepted definition of a landslide.

I've said it over and over again: if Hillary Clinton runs in 2016, she wins. This just supports my case.

Quinnipiac University is polling the 2016 Presidential race (yes, yes, I know).

Clinton (D) 49
Christie (R) 36

Clinton (D) 54
Cruz (R) 31

Clinton (D) 53
Paul (R) 36

N=1497
MOE=2.5

Among voters who are Democratic or lean Democratic:
Clinton 61
Biden 11
Warren 7
Cuomo 2
Warner 1

If she's thinking about running (and recent press releases indicate that she is), these numbers should encourage her to go for it. There's no guarantee that these numbers will last. Numbers like this can barely be counted on to last three weeks, let alone three years. But they demonstrate a depth of base support that simply wasn't there for her in 2008, when Obama and Edwards were credible, more progressive alternatives.
