Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush would both take New Hamsphire’s 4 electoral votes over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if the presidential election were today, according to Dartmouth University’s eighth annual State of the State Poll.
Walker beats Clinton 38.7 % – 34.8%. Bush beats Clinton 36.9 – 34.14%.
Clinton would beat Governor Chris Christie 36.5% – 34.4%.
The poll has a margin of error of +/- 5.2%, so Walker, Bush, Christie, and all other Republicans polled except Ted Cruz are virtually tied with Clinton. Clinton beat Cruz by by more than ten points. In all the head to head match-ups against Clinton, 30% of the voters are undecided. This poll is meaningless and I’m only writing about it because I haven’t gotten a press release from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office today and don’t have a click baiting crime story to post.
The Quinnipiac Univeristy Poll of likely Iowa GOP Caucus voters released today is not meaningless.
Despite his support of Jersey pig farmers using crates popular in Iowa, Christie has an 24 point upside down approval rating in the Buck Eye State and only 3% of likely caucus goers would vote for him. Christie told the NJ 101.5 Ask the Governor radio show audience last week that he has spent more time in Iowa than any of the other GOP presidential contenders.
