Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dominates the 2016 presidential field, winning thesupport of 61 percent of Democrats and holding double-digit leads over leading Republicancontenders, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.Among Democrats, Clinton tops Vice President Joseph Biden 61
11 percent, with 7 percent for U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and 2 percent for New York Gov.Andrew Cuomo. No other candidate tops 1 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.The Republican field is more mixed, with 17 percent for U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, 13 percent for New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie, 12 percent for U.S. Sen. MarcoRubio of Florida, 11 percent for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and 10 percent each for U.S. Sen.Ted Cruz of Texas and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.In womano-a-mano matchups, Clinton tops leading Republicans:
36 percent over Christie;
36 percent over Paul;
31 percent over Cruz.
As she watches the hand-to-hand political combat in Washington, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remains above the fray and the queen of the 2016 mountain
,” said Peter A.
Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Recent rumblings about a Vice President Joseph Biden candidacy aside, she is six times better among democrats than is he and in head-to-head matchups with Republicans shedominates. We
ve got a long way to 2016, but at this point she looks very very strong

The race for the GOP nomination remains wide open with a handful of candidates bunched together in low double-digits
,” Brown added
Sen. Ted Cruz
high-profile roleopposing Obamacare has added him to that group, but he probably will have to find other waysto keep his star rising.
Over the last several months, Sen. Marco Rubio
star has fallen a bit and Sen. RandPaul
s has risen a bit, while Gov. Jeb Bush, Gov. Christopher Christie and Congressman PaulRyan have essentially been flickering in place
Gun Control
American voters support background checks for all gun-buyers 89
9 percent, basicallyunchanged from the results of several Quinnipiac University polls conducted in the months after the Sandy Hook massacre. Voters in households where there is a gun support backgroundchecks 88
11 percent, with no group falling below 80 percent on this measure.Voters support stricter gun control laws generally 54
41 percent, with voters in gunhouseholds opposed 56
40 percent.But voters say 61
32 percent that stricter gun laws would not have prevented theWashington Navy Yard massacre last month.Voters support 66
23 percent, including 52
35 percent in gun households, Starbucks’
request that customers not bring guns into their stores. S
tarbucks’ request makes them morelikely to sip there, 15 percent say, while 11 percent say less likely and 72 percent say it won’t
make a difference in where they get their coffee.
Americans somewhat favor more gun control but more than three in five say stricter guncontrol would not have stopped the Washington Navy Yard shooter 
,” Brown said.
-thirds of voters prefer their Starbucks coffee without a shot as they back the coffee-
seller’s plea to keep guns out of the store.”
