Another day, another poll indicating that at this point, more than two years from the presidential election, Democrats would vote for Hillary Clinton for president while Republicans are lingering wide-eyed over their many choices. Which is not a bad thing.

A survey by Suffolk University of likely Iowa voters finds that 63 percent of Democratic caucus-goers would vote for the former secretary of state, while 12 percent chose Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and 10 percent back Vice President Joe Biden.

But on to the GOP array, which has a little something for everybody, a little like an appetizer tray.

The survey found that likely Republican voters’ favorite was Mike Huckabee, who garnered at 11 percent of the vote. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush took 10 percent each, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Ben Carson each won 9 percent, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 7 percent.

Six others were tied with 6 percent each: Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sarah Palin, Condoleezza Rice and Rick Santorum.
