Proof Hillary Clinton isn't vulnerable to a liberal challenge in 2016

Hillary Clinton tops a tentative Democratic presidential primary field in New Hampshire by a cavernous 49-point margin, according to a Bloomberg poll released Monday.

Among likely voters, Clinton leads the pack at 62 percent, with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren a distant second at 13 percent. The standard caveats about the mutability of early horse race polls still apply, but Clinton's mammoth margin over Warren suggests the former secretary of state will not be as vulnerable to a liberal challenger as some have speculated.
