48% Think Hillary Clinton Might Run for President in 2016

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

Will she or won’t she? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said she has no further political ambitions, but a sizable number of voters think she may run again for the presidency.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is at least somewhat likely that Mrs. Clinton will run for president in 2016, but that includes just 17% who say it’s Very Likely. Thirty-six percent (36%) think she is unlikely to make a bid for the White House four years from now, but only seven percent (7%) feel it’s Not At All Likely. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
