You can't exactly include both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio in a poll together. If one of them were to run, the other one wouldn't run. They support each other too strongly. I doubt Jeb Bush will run, if he was going to he would have done so already. By 2016, it would have been 6 years since his successor was elected. His son, George P. Bush, likely has more of a political future than Jeb does at this point.

At this point in time, the 2016 Republican primary looks to be Christie versus Rubio. Although I'd like to see them run together on a ticket.

Other good choices could include Rand Paul, and/or Ted Cruz.

As far as the Democratic side goes, it depends on how tired or rejuvinated Hillary Clinton is in 2 years (since primary season will begin in early 2015), and Martin O'Malley has suggested that he will run if Hillary Clinton doesn't run.

Andrew Cuomo first needs to win re-election in 2014, which should be easy for him, although not necessarily guarenteed, due to the fact that his approval ratings went down due to lack of support for his strict gun policies.

I think Joe Biden will run and since Hillary does not seem to (at least at this point in time) want to run for President again in 2016, Joe Biden will be the Dem Frontrunner. With possibly Martin O'Malley as either his VP and/or primary runner up.

Just my thoughts on this. What do the rest of you think about this?

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
