(CNN) - There's no frontrunner in the very early hunt for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in the state that votes first in the race for the White House, according to a new survey.
A Suffolk University poll of Iowa voters also indicates what just about every other national and state survey has indicated, that Hillary Clinton would be the overwhelming frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, should the former secretary of state launch a second campaign for the White House.

According to the poll, which was released Wednesday, there's a massive traffic jam among the potential GOP presidential contenders in Iowa. Eleven percent of Republicans likely to take part in the 2016 Iowa caucuses said that former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, a 2008 GOP presidential candidate, would be their first choice for their party's nomination.
Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush were both one point back, at 10%.
Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Dr. Ben Carson, a renowned neurosurgeon and a popular figure among conservatives, were each at 9%, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 7%.
Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, a 2012 Republican presidential candidate, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, and former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice were all at six percent.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and longtime Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who also ran for the nomination in 2012, were both at 3%.
With a sampling error of plus or minus 8.7 percentage points for likely GOP caucus goers, the entire potential field is basically all knotted up.
"The results of this poll show a wide-open race for Republicans in Iowa, with an opportunity for any number of candidates to catapult out of here on caucus night. For a candidate to do well here, they need to come to the state often, get to know Iowans and answer their questions, and work to turn out voters on a cold caucus night," Iowa Republican strategist Tim Albrecht told CNN.
"With no apparent frontrunner, expectations are low for candidates visiting here, and nowhere to go but up," added Albrecht, a former longtime spokesman for GOP Gov. Terry Branstad.
The survey is the second straight of Iowa Republicans to find Huckabee on the top, although well within the sampling error. He was also in first place in a recent poll by Republican-leaning WPA Opinion Research. The former Arkansas governor was in the Hawkeye State on Tuesday to keynote a major fundraiser for a leading Iowa social conservative group, and for meetings with leading Republicans.
Huckabee, thanks to strong support from social conservatives, won the 2008 Iowa GOP caucuses.
Hillary, Hillary, Hillary
When it comes to the Democrats, it's the same old story - Clinton by a long shot.
Sixty-three percent of self-described Democratic Iowa caucus-goers said the former secretary of state, senator from New York State and first lady would be their first choice for their party's presidential nomination. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts placed second at 12%. The freshman senator, a favorite of many progressives, has said she won't run in 2016.
Vice President Joe Biden finished third at 10% in the survey, with everyone else registering at 1% or less.
Clinton was the frontrunner in the race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination when she came in third in the caucuses, behind then-Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois and former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina. Then-Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware came in fifth place, grabbing just 1% of the Democratic vote.
The Suffolk University poll was conducted April 3-8, with 800 likely voters in Iowa (including 224 likely 2016 Republican caucus voters and 135 likely Democratic caucus goers) questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
