      about the environment and the climate change denial by republicans may be what keeps many (young) voters leaning to democrats.

      Climate change denial is a very net negative for republicans.  I definitely missed the issue in my overview.  Thank you.

      And while I also agree that head-to-head polling is not good for republicans (Hillary trounces each of them), this is merely an early indicator that rarely captures the theoretical independent voter who is willing to vote for either political party or it overstates independents.  After all, Chris Christie still polls the best against Hillary, but his embrace of President Obama post-Sandy, appointing a Muslim to NJ bench, and the impending indictments are, in my opinion, not being captured in current polling of likely republican primary voters.

      Let's also remember polling at this point prior to the elections in 2008 had Hillary trouncing Obama.
