Raleigh, N.C. – In PPP’s newest poll, Hillary Clinton dominates the Democratic field in Pennsylvania despite Joe Biden’s native son status, while Chris Christie leads his fellow potential Republican candidates.
Among potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidates, Clinton picks up a staggering 65% of the vote. The next closest is Pennsylvania’s own Joe Biden, who fails to even hit double digits in his home state. Farther down the line are Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren with 5% each.
On the Republican side of things, the story couldn’t be any more different, as five separate candidates pick up 10% or more of the primary vote. Pennsylvania’s former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, however, was not one of those five. Chris Christie leads all potential candidates with 23%, followed by Mike Huckabee at 14%, Rand Paul at 12%, and Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz tied at 10% each. Much of Christie’s lead comes from those identifying as moderate and somewhat conservative.
