He's said he's not running in 2016, other say he might. Whatever he decides, he's at the top of a few 2016 Republican polls, including this new one from Quinnipiac by a wide margin
Mitt Romney has the edge among possible 2016 presidential contenders in a survey of GOP voters released Wednesday, while Hillary Clinton enjoys a huge lead among Democrats.
Romney took the top spot with 19 percent when Republicans were asked whom they would vote for if the primary were held now, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.
From Nov. 18-23, 1,623 registered voters nationwide were surveyed with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. Eleven percent of Republicans said that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) would be their pick.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and conservative author and neurosurgeon Ben Carson each drew shares of 8 percent.
Romney has particularly high name recognition because he has run for president twice before, something that may help him in early polls. He would tie Clinton in a hypothetical matchup.
Clinton demolishes her Democratic competition in a proposed primary, taking 57 percent to Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) 13 percent and Vice President Biden's 9 percent
