Poll: Six Republicans would beat Hillary Clinton

Six GOP presidential candidates would beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup, according to a Fox News poll released Sunday.

Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) would do best against Clinton, 50 to 42 percent, pollsters found.

Billionaire Donald Trump, retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would also win hypothetical elections, according to the new poll, taken after more than 100 people were killed and more than 300 others injured in a wave of terrorist attacks in Paris.

Clinton and former businesswoman Carly Fiorina would tie with 42 percent each.

Trump remains the GOP front-runner with 28 percent support from likely Republican primary voters in the new poll.

Carson has 18 percent while Cruz and Rubio are tied at 14 percent apiece. No other GOP candidate had more than 3 percent support.

The poll, conducted Nov. 16-19, has a 3 percent margin of error for all registered voters and a 4.5 percent margin of error for Republican primary voters.
