Hillary Clinton would beat two Florida Republicans -- Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush -- in a hypothetical presidential election in that state, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday.

Among registered Florida voters, the former secretary of state would defeat Rubio by 52 to 41 percent and Bush by 51 to 40 percent, the survey found.

Clinton has a 60 percent favorability rating among Floridians. That's higher than either Rubio or Bush, although the difference may be largely due to the fact that she's better known. Nearly one-quarter of voters said they hadn't heard enough about Rubio to form an opinion, compared to just 4 percent who said the same of her.

Clinton's current popularity has made her the favorite for 2016 in most early presidential polling. Another Quinnipiac poll showed her leading nationwide against several candidates, and the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling has found her leading in such states as Minnesota, Iowa and Texas.

HuffPost Pollster's average, which includes all publicly available polling, shows Clinton with a 56 percent favorability rating nationwide.

The latest Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,000 registered Florida voters by phone between March 13 and 18.
