Early polling has consistently found Hillary Clinton with a commanding lead in the 2016 Democratic primaries. Two surveys released this week are no exception, showing the former secretary of state a wide favorite in New Hampshire and Wisconsin.
A New England College poll, released Tuesday, found that 65 percent of New Hampshire Democrats said they would like to see Clinton as president. Ten percent backed Vice President Joe Biden, while support for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick was in the single digits. Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley took 0 percent.
The Republican field was less stratified. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio had a narrow edge at 17 percent, followed closely by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 16 percent and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at 15 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the former GOP vice presidential nominee, each took 12 percent, followed by former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
The latest findings track with two April surveys that showed Clinton taking more than 60 percent of New Hampshire's primary vote and Republicans yet to settle on a favorite.
Meanwhile, a Marquette Law School poll of Wisconsin voters, also released Tuesday, found strong backing for Clinton among Democrats and for Ryan among his home-state Republicans.
Clinton took 62 percent of the field among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, trailed by Biden at 13 percent. On the GOP side, Ryan was supported by 27 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, followed by Rubio at 21 percent and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 16 percent.
Both New Hampshire and Wisconsin have open primaries, in which voters don't need to be registered with a party to vote in its primary.
The Marquette survey also found that a race between Clinton and Ryan would be close. She held a 4-point edge over Ryan, 48 percent to 44 percent, with wider leads over other possible opponents.
The New England College poll surveyed 340 Republican voters and 314 Democratic voters by phone. The Marquette poll surveyed 717 voters, including 302 Republicans and 333 Democrats, by phone between May 6 and May 9.
