(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.

Clinton has said publicly she will not seek elected office after her four-year term as America's top diplomat ends in 2012, shooting down speculation she might run for president in the future.

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.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Romney received a 42 percent favorability rating while rivals Texas Gov. Perry and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas garnered 32 percent. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich received a 28 percent rating and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who is still mulling a bid for the White House, came in at 26 percent.

When asked who they would vote for in 2012, 29 percent said they would definitely vote for Obama, 43 percent said they would definitely vote for another candidate and 21 percent said they would consider voting for another candidate.

The poll surveyed 997 adults between Sept. 9 and Sept. 12 with a sampling error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

"I think Hillary is so fed up with the whole mess, you couldn't give her the office!! "

Ohhh if Obama steps out of the race she will run, but she will not challenge him. I would bet that there was a deal struck when she accepted SOS.

Unless Obama can turn things around in one year, or put on a super fantastic snake oil show, Hillary is probably the only hope the democratic party has. Though I would not want her as president either. Johnson knew he was anchor for the party, and he fell on the sword. Had Bobby not been assassinated he probably would have been president.

It's an enormous risk for a party to take out their own incumbent. The political infighting would be downright nasty and would virtually guarantee the election of the opponent. If the Democrats attempt to take out Obama as their 2012 candidate, the damage to their party would be devastating.

They know this. This is why I don't think Hillary would try it. All she would accomplish is to jeopardize her own political future and guarantee an R president in 2012.
