Q Poll: Christie Tops Clinton

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Clinton and CorzineThis is self-explanatory, Save Jerseyans:

In an early look at the 2016 presidential campaign, 43 percent of American voters back New Jersey’s Republican Governor, Christopher Christie, while 42 percent back former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democrat, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Ms. Clinton has leads of nine points or more against other possible Republican contenders, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds:

  • 49 – 40 percent over U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky;
  • 51 – 36 percent over U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas;
  • 49 – 40 percent over U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.

The gender gap in the Christie-Clinton matchup is obvious: women go to the Democrat 48 – 39 percent while men go Republican 47 – 35 percent. Independent voters go to Christie 48 – 32 percent, with Democrats for Clinton 85 – 6 percent and Republicans for Christie 85 – 5 percent. White voters back Christie 50 – 35 percent with Clinton ahead 77 – 12 percent among black voters and 46 – 38 percent among Hispanic voters.
