HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - Out of a job but still popular, Hillary Rodham Clinton tops President Barack Obama in a new poll.
A Quinnipiac (KWIHN'-uh-pee-ak) University poll released Friday found the just-departed secretary of state is the most popular national political figure among a number of luminaries. Clinton's favorability rating of 61 percent compares to the 51 percent of respondents who viewed Obama favorably.
Clinton, who has been touted as a possible presidential candidate in 2016, topped a group including Vice President Joseph Biden, House Speaker John Boehner, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and Clinton successor Secretary of State John Kerry.
The telephone poll was conducted Jan. 30-Feb. 4, as Clinton was leaving her job. Pollsters surveyed 1,772 registered voters. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.3 percentage points.
