The next Iowa Caucus is still three years away, but some eager pollsters have already started buzzing about who would come out on top if they decided to run.

A poll by the Conservative Intelligence Briefing in late January found on the Republican side Florida Senator Marco Rubio is leading the pack with 27 percent.
Former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan comes in second with 18 percent.  New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, and former Senator Rick Santorum also made the cut with around 12 percent each.
The field on the Democratic side is not as deep, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the overwhelming favorite with 65 percent, followed by Vice President Joe Biden with 14 percent.

Of those polled 15 percent of Republican responders said they were unsure, and 17 percent of Democratic responders felt the same. It is hard to blame them; a lot can change in three years.
