Ohio doesn't look much like a swing state these days. A new Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, found former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton far ahead of her potential rivals for the presidency in 2016. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was thought to be the GOP's best chance, but Clinton tops him 49-36 percent, the poll found. That's a dramatic change from a November survey that had Clinton up by 1. Since then, Christie has become embroiled in controversy over lane closings last year at the George Washington Bridge. Clinton does well against all the potential rivals, including:

  • 51 – 36 percent over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush;

  • 50 – 36 percent over U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida;

  • 51 – 38 percent over U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky;

  • 49 – 40 percent over U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin;

  • 51 – 34 percent over U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas;

  • 51 – 39 percent over Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
