WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton, undeclared but not uninterested, is heading into the 2016 presidental election season ahead of all GOP contenders,according to a newABC News/Washington Post poll. The survey comes out as most Republican 2016 hopefuls are appearing at the Conservative Political Action Committee Conference, including New Jersey Gov. Christ Christie, not someone who has been close to CPAC in the past.

Back to the poll. Some highlights:

*25 percent of Americans say they’d “definitely” support Clinton if she ran for president.

*41 percent say they would consider her.

*32 percent, rule her out – fewer than did so in 2006-7, in advance of her losing run for the 2008 Democratic nomination.
