Hillary Clinton 'Wipes Out Everybody' In New Presidential Poll

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is losing some ground in the polls, but the numbers still look good for a potential 2016 presidential run despite the recent controversy over her emails.

In New York, Clinton would get 51 percent of the vote in a possible 2016 Democratic presidential primary, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.

Trailing Clinton in the Democratic pack is Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts with 11 percent, Vice President Joe Biden with 8 percent and Gov. Andrew Cuomo with 7 percent.

"New York's adopted daughter from Chappaqua wipes out everybody," assistant poll director Maurice Carrol told 1010 WINS.

When stacked up against the top Republican contenders, Clinton still leads by margins of 20 percentage points or more, 1010 WINS reported.

The poll comes after recent criticism of Clinton's use of a personal email account for government-related work at the State Department.

On the Republican side, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker have seen a surge in favorability in the polls on a national level, but it's a different story in New York.

"The Republicans are all over the lot," Carroll said. "There's no dominant figure in the Republican side."

The Republican presidential primary in New York has Bush and Walker at 13 percent each, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 12 percent, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 10 percent and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 8 percent, according to the poll.

The poll surveyed 1,228 New York State voters between March 11 and March 16 with a margin of error of +/- 2.8 percentage points.
