East Brunswick residents: Would you elect Chris Christie again as governor of New Jersey?
A recent poll out of the Eagleton Institute of Politics indicated that if Christie ran again, New Jersey voters wouldn't may not send him back to office. Only 22 percent of registered voters indicated they would support a 2012 presidential bid by Christie, while 65 percent oppose the idea and 12 percent are unsure.
According to the poll, 36 percent of voters think having a governor on the national stage helps New Jersey’s image, 42 percent said it makes no difference and 21 percent said it hurts New Jersey's image.
“The governor continues to deny any interest in running for president in 2012,” said David Redlawsk, director of the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll and professor of political science at Rutgers University via release. “Given these numbers, that’s a pretty good thing. Every time we’ve asked about a presidential run, New Jersey voters have overwhelmingly opposed the idea.”
The results stem from a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll of 773 registered voters conducted with both landline and cell phone households from March 28 to April 4, with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.
