Hillary Clinton is well positioned among Millennials, both in the Democratic primaries and in the general election should she win the nomination, according to a new poll from the Harvard University Institute of Politics.

The poll finds that 55% of 18- to 29- year-olds want a Democrat to win the White House in 2016, while 40% prefer a Republican. Among prospective Democratic candidates, Clinton has a large lead, receiving 47% support in a hypothetical field that includes Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who comes in second with 11%. Warren has said repeatedly she is not running for president.

The GOP race among Millennials appears as wide open as it is with all age groups. One potential candidate, Ben Carson, reaches 10%, while all others in the field are in single digits.
