    Each has their own opinion. When I look at the favorable/unfavorable ratings of each candidate among independents, Hillary is the only one with an unfavorable rating in the high 40's. Also I said I used the term easiest in a very loosely manner and that any Democratic nominee would be the favorite. Hillary will probably lose the independent vote if her favorables/unfavorables remain constant with what they are today. But she can afford to lose the independent vote as long as it isn't by a whole bunch. The bigger Democratic base allows her to do so. Using Gallup's June 8th figures the Democrat Party makes up 28% of the electorate whereas the Republicans have only 24%. So if those figures were to remain constant which they will not, they are dynamic, Hillary would have 4 points to play with.

    This is not going into the electoral college which is a whole another ball of wax.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think Clinton would do better in exciting the base and getting out the vote kinda issues, which where the key areas that Obama used to win the last two elections. Her name recognition also makes it virtually impossible for other candidates to define her, which is a strong positive(democrats where able to define Romney before the convention as some one out of touch with the middle class, which was pretty important). I would suspect that in the general, only Warren has a realistic chance of outperforming her among democrats. However, it is too far out to say any of that with any real confidence.

    Why does your poll lack an "Other" option?

    Clinton by a little, in that she is more moderate economically(leading to more likelihood of negotiated compromises to get things done) and has more foreign policy experience. However, I think fairly highly of both.

    Re: For Democratic voters

    of the 2, I think Warren is the better candidate.... but that's based only off of her positions. ( Hillary is worlds ahead of her as far as being a political operator)

    she's basically an unknown at this point, but what we do know about her doesn't lend itself to her being very good at the chief executive job.

    we've already elected too many people who act as a President of their base... maybe it's time to elect someone that can be everyone's President.. or at least someone who will not ignore the concerns of the other half of the country that didn't vote for them.
    Warren , so far, is too combative towards everyone who doesn't believe as she does.... she's far too divisive for my tatse.

    I can't vote but if I could I would say Warren..........People have Clinton fatigue and she has way to much baggage.

    In presidential years the Democrats have always or at least it seems to me had a better get out the vote campaign. In 2008 the American people were fed up with Republican rule, I think it didn’t matter who the nominees were, the Democrats were going to win, Obama received 53% of the vote to 46% for McCain. Ironically Obama also won 53% of the independent vote which made up 38% of the electorate back then. In 2012 Obama won with 51% to Romney’s 47% with independents splitting 50-50 between the two. President Obama won because of the Democrats larger base.

    I agree, Hillary is already defined. She is a well-known commodity. But she is not tracking all that well with independents as I have stated in another post 41% to 47% in the negative as far as favorable/unfavorable goes. But neither are any of the mentioned Republicans to date either. But most of them are in the 20’s and 30’s and can either increase their favorable by a lot as too can their negatives be increased a lot. It is a two edged sword.

    But I think at times we tend to place too much emphasis on the popular vote, it is the electoral college that counts. For a Republican to win in 2016 it is a must to win all the states Romney carried plus Florida, Virginia and Ohio and that still doesn’t put the Republican over the top. Whomever runs will also have to wine one of the remaining swing states, New Hampshire, Iowa, and Nevada. Iowa has only went once in the last 7 presidential election to a Republican candidate, New Hampshire only once in the last six leaving Nevada which went to the GOP in 2 of the last 6 Presidential races. Not good odds to say the least.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The decision that will be made by democrats will be amongst a field of candidates, not just 2.
