New Jerseyans would rather see former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush or Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker elected president in 2016 than their own Governor Chris Christie, according to a Monmouth University Poll released this morning.
“The message from New Jersey voters seems to be as simple as ABC – anybody but Christie,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.
In fairness to Christie, it should be noted that Murray did not poll the Governor’s presidential bona fides against former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Congressman Frank Pallone, Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik, Freeholder John Curley, Monmouth Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal or Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
Christie isn’t even New Jersey Republicans first choice to the president. By 44%-30% New Jersey Republicans prefer Walker to Christie in 2016.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Presidential Politics, Chris Christie | Tags: 2016 Presidential politics, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Chris Christie, Frank Pallone, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Joe Kyrillos, John Curley, Jon Hornik, Lawrence Bathgate, Monmouth University Poll, Patrick Murray, Rick Santorum, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Vin Gopal | Comments Off on Jersey Prefers Clinton, Bush or Walker over Christie for President in 2016
