Ryan, Clinton Most Favored in Iowa

A new Des Moines Register Iowa Poll finds Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) "is wildly popular here with a 73% favorability rating, a surprise finding that reveals he's at the forefront of potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates in the nation's kickoff voting state."

"Two former winners of the Republican caucuses have the second and third highest favorability ratings among voting-age GOP'ers -- 66% for Mike Huckabee, 58% for Rick Santorum -- among 10 buzzed-about Republicans tested in this poll."

"But their popularity isn't as striking as the overwhelming affinity Iowa Democrats have for Hillary Clinton, with 89% saying they have a positive opinion of her. Just 7% of voting-age Democrats have a negative impression the former U.S. secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York."
