TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A new poll finds a majority of
New Jersey voters believe Gov. Chris Christie deserves a second term.
The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows 56 percent of
registered voters approve of the job Christie is doing and 52 percent think he
deserves to be re-elected.
The Republican governor himself has not said whether he'll seek a second term
The poll also looked at possible Democratic challengers to Christie. The top
prospect, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, trailed Christie by 4 points, while state
Sen. Dick Codey came in second, 6 points behind.
The telephone survey of 1,405 registered voters was taken Oct. 10-14 and has
a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
