Because there's only somewhere around 1,048 days between now and Election Day 2016, we needed a national survey on who might win. Your answer? It's essentially a dead heat between Chris Christie (48%) and Hillary Clinton (46%), according to the CNN/ORC International poll. Clinton trumps all other GOP challengers, with Paul Ryan losing by 8, Rand Paul by 13, and Mike Huckabee by 15. Before ordering your campaign buttons, note that "polls taken so many years before an election have little or no predictive value," says CNN's polling director. NBC News, meanwhile, has advice for all the likely contenders in 2014. (Read more Election 2016 stories.)
