In a recent poll, published by the Eagleton Institute of Politics, not so surprising results were released that in a hypothetical election, Hillary Clinton would beat New Jersey Governor Chris Christie by double digits. This mirrors similar results that were released in a Quinnipiac University poll in October.
I’m not saying that this means that Chris Christie should not run for Presidential Election in 2016, but it isn’t a good sign when you cannot win over your own state.
That being said, it is no secret that the state of New Jersey is generally more Democratic than Republican. The New Jersey state legislature is predominantly Democrats. Furthermore, there are 700,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans.
