PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A new Quinnipiac University poll gives an early look at the 2016 presidential race that may surprise both parties, but especially the Democrats.

The poll in Colorado shows a close race for governor and the US Senate there this year.

The survey also finds the president’s approval rate under 40 percent, but the most interesting figures come from speculated 2016 matchups.

If the presidential election were held today, survey responses indicate Hillary Clinton would lose to Rand Paul, 46 to 43 percent, but she’d edge out Chris Christie, 42 to 40 percent.  And she beats Mike Huckabee and Jeb Bush by a few points, too.

On the Christie front, his approval rating in Colorado is only 34 percent — Clinton’s is 48 percent — yet the races are close in a key swing state two years from now.
