Americans believe Hillary Clinton is tougher than President Obama.

A new CNN/ORC poll shows 64 percent of respondents feel the former Secretary of State is tough enough to handle a crisis. 

Just 53 percent said the same thing about the President. 

Sixty-four percent also said Clinton was a strong and decisive leader. 

That number was 14 percent higher than President Obama's rating.  Clinton also gets a 68 percent mark on likeability, up five points from 2007.
