Bush, Walker lead the field of GOP presidential hopefuls

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A new poll shows some separation between two potential Republican presidential candidates and the rest of the field.

A Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday shows Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker on top with 18%, followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush with 16% support.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee were tied at 8% each among those who were surveyed for the poll.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tops the list for Democrats with 56% of support as their 2016 presidential choice.

The poll also shows only 30% of those surveyed want the next president to continue with President Obama's policies; 59% want the next president to "change direction."
