A new poll shows Hillary Clinton has the millionaires' vote for president in 2016, should she decide to join the race.
According to a CNBC survey,
31 percent of households with investable assets of at least $1 million would select Clinton for president in the next election.
Twenty-three percent of independent millionaires in the survey would vote for Clinton, as would 5 percent of Republican millionaires.
Thirty-eight percent of women millionaires and 27 percent of male millionaires would support Clinton.
Earning the second highest total was former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a Republican, with 18 percent, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, also a Republican, who earned 14 percent.
Also on the list of potential presidential candidates was Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (11 percent), Wisconsin's Republican Gov. Scott Walker (8 percent), and Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (8 percent). Ten percent of those polled chose "other."
Bush earned the highest amount of support from Republican millionaires (36 percent), ahead of Christie (19 percent) and Walker (18 percent).
Ninety-three percent of those surveyed said they voted in last month's midterm elections.
The top issue for the upcoming presidential election in two years is taxes and government spending, which garnered 29 percent of the voters' choice in the poll. That was followed by political gridlock (22 percent) and the economy and unemployment (20 percent).
The voters polled said the new Congress' first priority should be corporate tax reform, followed by immigration reform and repealing the Affordable Care Act.
No major candidates from either party have announced plans to run for president in 2016, but several are considering joining the race. Clinton is among that group, and a report Thursday claimed she is working out the details
ahead of a potential entry into the race next spring.
