Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be a dominant favorite in the 2016 Iowa caucuses if she chooses to run for president, a new survey shows.

The Public Policy Polling (PPP) found that Clinton took away 58 percent of the Iowa vote in a hypothetical presidential run.

It found that Vice President Joe Biden trailed far behind at 17 percent, followed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo at 6 percent and Massachusetts Senate-elect Elizabeth Warren at 3 percent.

None of the other Democrats tested, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Virginia Senator Mark Warner, got even one percent in the poll.

According to Politico, if Clinton does not run, Biden would jump into the lead with a less-commanding 40 percent of the vote, with Cuomo rising to 14 percent and Warren up to 9 percent.

In the event that neither Clinton nor Biden runs, Cuomo draws 30 percent to Warren's 13 percent, with 46 percent of voters unsure who they'd support. (ANI)
