A whopping 40% of NJ Republicans say Chris Christie should drop out of the presidential race. Incredible, because just 2 years ago, Chris Christie was reelected Gov in NJ with 60% of the vote
Just 8 percent of New Jersey Republicans would vote for Governor Christie if the state's presidential primary were held now, according to a poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University.
Christie ranks fourth in the presidential race, behind mogul Donald Trump, who had 31 percent; neurosurgeon Ben Carson, 16 percent; and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 15 percent.
By a 61 percent to 33 percent margin, all New Jersey voters surveyed say Christie should drop out of the presidential race.
"Even 4 out of 10 of his fellow Republicans want him to pull the plug," Carroll said.
Among Democrats, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads with 56 percent, followed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders with 12 percent and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley with 2 percent.
While Trump is the top pick among Republicans, he also ranks first in a negative category. When asked who they "would definitely not support," Trump topped the field with 21 percent, followed by 19 percent for former Bush and 18 percent for Christie.
