(CNN) — She lost the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, but over a third of Americans said the U.S. would be better off now if Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were president, according to a new poll.
The Bloomberg survey released Friday showed 34 percent of those questioned said America would be superior under a Hillary Clinton administration, while 47 percent said it would be about the same and 13 percent said it would be worse.
A quarter of respondents held similar wishful thoughts in a July poll.
Clinton remains the most popular American political figure with nearly two-thirds of Americans holding a favorable view of the former first lady and New York senator. Half of the respondents felt the same way about President Barack Obama, who received the lowest job approval rating of his presidency, at 45 percent.
On the Republican side of the aisle, presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Perry grabbed the top spots among Republican and Republican-leaning independent voters when asked who they would choose next election. The two were also among the most likeable in the GOP field, among all Americans.
