It’s no surprise New Jersey voters approve of the job Governor Chris Christie is doing in his Garden State and would like to see him re-elected in November.
His popularity, although high, has slipped four points from February, down to 70 percent of voters who said they enjoy his no nonsense style. Still, a rather high score of any governor in the seven states surveyed by the independent Quinnipiac University.
However, many voters said they are not sure he should run for president and were sitting on the fence as to whether he would make a good leader of the free world.
Opinions are divided as to whether Christie would make a good president, according to the Quinnipiac University poll, with 41 percent saying yes and 44 percent saying no. Only 46 percent of voters would like to see Christie run for president in 2016, while 47 percent want him to remain governor of the Garden State.
