Just before the Democrats’ third pre-primary debate Saturday night, Hillary Clinton remains comfortably ahead in the expectations game.

The latest Rasmussen Reports Hillary Meter finds that 87% of Likely Democratic Voters think Clinton is likely to be their party’s presidential nominee in 2016, with 56% who say it is Very Likely. Just 13% feel the former secretary of State and first lady is not very or Not At All Likely to win the nomination. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
