Former first lady Hillary Clinton has been named as the "queen of the 2016 mountain," in a poll asking Democrats who they want to run for President in 2016.
The former secretary of state got nearly six times more support among Democrats than Vice President Joe Biden.
Some 61 percent of voters came out in support of Clinton, with Vice President Biden only securing 11 percent of support among Democrats.
Senator Elizabeth Warren trailed behind with 7 percent , 2 percent of respondents chose New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo as their favorite for the party's primary.
The new Quinnipiac poll shows Clinton ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, 49 percent to 36 percent in a general contest.
“As she watches the hand-to-hand political combat in Washington, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remains above the fray and the queen of the 2016 mountain," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
"Recent rumblings about a Vice President Joseph Biden candidacy aside, she is six times better among democrats than is he and in head-to-head matchups with Republicans she dominates. We've got a long way to 2016, but at this point she looks very very strong."
From September 23 - 29, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,497 registered voters for the poll.
