Poll: Christie Trails Clinton In His Own State
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie trails former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton among New Jersey voters surveyed in a poll about the 2016 presidential race.
The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows Clinton leading the Republican governor 50 to 42 percent. Both are considering 2016 runs but haven’t committed.
The poll also shows Clinton with strong support among women New Jersey voters surveyed. Men are divided. Clinton has a slight edge among independent voters.
New Jersey voters give the Democrat a 60-38 percent favorability rating while they’re evenly split at 47 percent for Christie.
Forty-nine percent say Christie should stay home compared to 46 percent who say he should run for president.
The poll of 1,148 voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
