The latest on the presidential horse race.

Voters Think Biden Would Make a Better President than Clinton

A recent poll by Rasmussen Reports has revealed that the majority of voters do not believe Joe Biden should run for president against Hillary Clinton. However, if he did run, the majority would support him over Clinton.

Should Vice President Joe Biden run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016?

  • Yes – 36%
  • No – 46%
  • Not sure – 18%

Who would make a better president?

  • Hillary Clinton – 29%
  • Joe Biden – 38%
  • Not Sure – 33%

There is a real lack of confidence in Clinton amongst critics from both sides. In this head-to-head matchup, Biden stole the female vote from his potential opponent. Clinton’s lack of commitment to anything of substance is weakening her stance and leading to a drop in popularity. She still outranks the majority of the Republican Party, but here popularity continues to suffer as she appears to be a bland candidate without a strong stance on any of the major issues.
