Poll: Hillary Beats Biden in ‘16

Has no one been swayed by The Onion’s autobiography of Joe Biden? The vice president comes in second in favorability ratings to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Clinton has favorable rating of 67 percent, compared with a 26 percent unfavorable rating, while Biden has a 48 percent favorable rating and a 37 percent unfavorable rating, according to the joint Washington Post–ABC News poll. Meanwhile, Democrats said Wednesday that Biden has ambitions of a 2016 run, with one source close to the White House telling Politico that the vice president is “intoxicated” by the idea. But don’t get your hopes up too soon for a Biden-Clinton race: Democratic sources insist it’s unlikely the two would challenge each other.
