Hillary Clinton would make a good president, according to voters in a new poll. Clinton is the only potential 2016 candidate to get a majority of positive responses from both parties in a Fox News poll, with Condoleezza Rice coming in second.

The two women were the most popular by far, with 55 percent of people saying Clinton would make a good president, and 43 percent saying the same for Rice.

Clinton’s support is even higher among her own party, with 83 percent of Democrats backing her. Rep. Paul Ryan enjoys the most positive support among Republicans, with 62 percent saying he would make a good president.

Other big names on the 12-person list fell short of Clinton’s bipartisan popularity, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ryan tied for third at 37 percent. Vice President Joe Biden was close behind, with 35 percent saying he would make a good president.

But Biden also got the most negative responses, with 59 percent of respondents saying he would not make a good president. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was second in that list with 56 percent.
