Poll: Most Americans view Hillary Clinton favorably

Two out of three Americans hold a favorable view of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a new poll released Wednesday found.

Sixty-five percent of Americans hold a favorable view of Clinton, up 3 percentage points from January 2010, according to the poll conducted by CNN/Opinion Research.

Broken down by party affiliation, the poll found 92 percent of Democrats hold a favorable view of Clinton, and 64 percent of independents share that view. Just 35 percent of Republicans view Clinton favorably, while 60 percent hold an unfavorable view.

The poll comes the same day that Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer that she was planning on "moving on" from politics after 2012.

In the interview, Clinton turned down the possibility of accepting an offer as vice president, running again for president, serving as Secretary of Defense or continuing as Secretary of State.
