“It’s very rare you go back a generation," Stevens said.

In a Quinnipiac University poll released earlier this month, Clinton dominated the Democratic field, garnering the support of 65 percent of potential primary voters. The next closest candidate, Vice President Biden, earned 13 percent, with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo rounding out the top three at 4 percent.

In a highly circulated op-ed piece written in February, Stevens argued Republicans would benefit in the coming election because of the age of their top presidential candidates.
