It is no secret that, should Hillary Clinton decide to mount a White House bid in 2016, she is well positioned to become the first woman president of the United States. It is hard to find a pollster who does not share the view of veteran Democratic analyst Doug Schoen: "Clinton not only leads the Democratic field in polls but also leads potential Republican challengers."

To be specific, according to the latest NBC News poll, Clinton is the favored candidate of 66 percent of prospective 2016 Democratic primary voters. Her appeal cuts across demographic lines, taking in those who view her candidacy as "historic," those who share her views and those who simply see her as a winner. Just 14 percent opt for an alternative at this point. (In a Public Policy Polling  survey from earlier this month, Clinton's at 67 percent among Democrats) 

In NBC's hypothetical November 2016 pairing, Clinton beats the "hot" Republican prospect of the moment, Chris Christie, by a 10-point margin nationally. "Clinton [is] benefiting from the same demographic trends that helped propel President Barack Obama to win the election in 2008 and re-election in 2012," argues a poll analysis, which also suggests that "other prominent Democrats would likely avoid the race if Clinton decides to throw her hat into the ring."
