    CNU poll shows Clinton winning Virginia in 2016

    A poll released Monday by Christopher Newport University's Wason Center for Public Policy shows Democrat Hillary Clinton winning Virginia in the 2016 presidential election, albeit narrowly in a hypothetical matchup against embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

    According to the survey of 901 registered Virginia voters, a contest between Clinton and Christie would be the Democrat's closest challenge, with Clinton edging the Republican 43 percent to 41 percent.

    The poll's overall margin of error is 3.3 percent.

    In other prospective face-offs, the former secretary of state and first lady tops U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) by 7 percent and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) by 8 percent.

    The poll comes more than two years before the next presidential contest and prior to an announcement from Clinton that she will seek her party's nomination.

    Other key findings from the CNU survey include:

    -Virginia Republican voters are very divided, but Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush get the most support in a hypothetical 2016 Republican primary.

    -Virginia Democrats strongly prefer Clinton over Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

    -President Obama’s approval is underwater in Virginia at 46 percent to 48 percent, but only 10 percent of voters approve of the job Congress is doing.

    What’s crummy is our governor has the same questionable traits. How a good man like Cuccinelli could lose to McAuliffe is a condemnation of the system and the voters. Rock stars with zero substance who now are overwhelmed on the national stage are proof that the best the democrats have is a community organizer, yikes.

    Amen Oranges569!

    She has never run a City, County, State, not a thing during her “career” of being Bill Clinton’s wife. When told Hillary Clinton
    has experience because she has 8 years in the white house, my immediate thought was “So has the pastry chef”.
    When it comes to running the state department, her biggest achievement was getting a US Ambassador and 3 other Americans killed
    by pretending terrorism had been defeated.
