Hillary Clinton has the edge over potential 2016 Republican challengers in swing state Virginia, according to a poll on Thursday.
Clinton would beat New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 45 percent to 41 percent, Florida former Gov. Jeb Bush 47 percent to 39 percent, Arkansas former Gov. Mike Huckabee 49 percent to 41 percent and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul 48 percent to 42 percent, according to the Quinnipiac poll.
Secretary Hillary Clintons lead over New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie, top-seeded among Republicans, is only four points, smaller than in other recent Quinnipiac University surveys. Whether that means the Bridgegate impact on Gov. Christie is fading in the rear-view mirror, only time will tell, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
Virginia voters have an overall favorable view of the former first lady, 52 percent to 44 percent, the highest favorable rating of any of the possible entrants into the race and higher than that of President Barack Obama.

In more good news for Democrats in the purple state, the poll also showed Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) with a strong lead over his Republican challenger, Ed Gillespie, 46 percent to 31 percent.
Quinnipiac surveyed 1,288 Virginia voters from March 19-24 for the poll, which has an error margin of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
