Americans are tired of the political establishment and want change, according to an AOL News poll.

When given the choice of Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Mitt Romney or "I hope someone else runs," an overwhelming majority of people opted for the devil they don't know.

More than 51,000 people voted as of Tuesday morning, and 61 percent of them are against either of the presumptive frontrunners in the 2016 presidential election.

A meager 26 percent said "Hillary all the way" and only 13 percent think "Mitt Romney is the man with the plan."

The AOL News poll ran from Monday afternoon until Tuesday morning.


It came on the heels of the former first lady and secretary of state appearing in Iowa over the weekend and only hours after a major Romney donor told Fox Business that he expects the former Massachusetts governor to take one more shot at the White House.

Readers also voiced their opinions in over 2,600 comments: opinions were sharply divided.

"I think anyone would be better than Hillary Clinton, one who can not be trusted, believed or depended upon to do the right thing for the country instead of what's good for Hillary," wrote Betty Hensley.

Rick Pollock, responding to Hensley's anti-Clinton comments, wrote: "Hillary's agenda is very pro women. Shame on you."

Hensley's comment was most "liked" on Facebook by AOL readers.

"I would not vote for Romney as dog catcher," said Robert Perez. "He's out touch [sic]."

That comment was echoed by many who griped that the former Bain Capital chairman's excessive wealth is a reason why he would not be a good leader. Others saw his personal success as the exact attribute one looks for in a leader.

FILE - This June 16, 2014 file photo shows former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reacting to a customer at a signing for her new book "Hard Choices," at Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Mass. Clinton’s “Hard Choices” sold well enough during its first week to make it among the year’s most popular nonfiction books. But its opening was also far slower than that for her previous memoir, "Living History." According to Simon & Schuster, "Hard Choices" has sold more than 100,000 copies since coming out June 10. By comparison, first week sales in 2003 for “Living History” were around 600,000 copies. (AP Photo/Steven Senne, File)

Some other comments took the discussion off the rails.

"In a match up between Hillary and Satan himself, I would have to go with Satan," said Stacy Marston.

Then-Senator Barack Obama referred in 2008 to a vote for McCain as president over him as "the devil you know versus the devil you don't."

Other politicians whose names have been tossed around as potential candidates include New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) and Vice President Joe Biden (D).

Other dark horses include Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Sen. Rob Portman (R-UT) and Sen. Ron Paul (R-KY).

America looks ready to roll the dice again.
