As former secretary of state Hillary Clinton mulls whether to run for president in 2016, poll after poll has shown her running well ahead of the rest of the potential Democratic pack.
The latest is a Quinnipiac University national survey released Thursday showing Clinton claiming the support of 65 percent of Democratic voters. Vice President Biden trails by a wide margin in second place, with 13 percent support.
Quinnipiac is just one of several polling outfits that have recently found Clinton up big.
As The Fix has written, Clinton is the heaviest favorite to win the Democratic nomination since Al Gore in 2000. It's clear that a 2016 Democratic race with Clinton would look very different than one without her. With the former secretary of state running, it's hard at this stage to see anyone knocking her off. Without Clinton in the mix, the field looks much more open.
