More troubling? In another head-to-head among registered voters, 42% think Jeb Bush would make a fine president whereas only 27% feel that way about their own governor. Scott Walker (34%) also tops Christie (24%) one-on-one.

The real news? Drilling down to the partisan tables, New Jersey Republicans prefer Christie over Bush by a strong 13-point margin, but Wisconsin’s Walker now leads Christie 44% to 30%; Christie led him 51% to 30% three months ago.

Fairleigh Dickinson’s latest PublicMind poll also found the Governor nursing a narrow lead.

“The message from New Jersey voters seems to be as simple as ABC – anybody but Christie,” concluded Patrick Murray, the esteemed director of Monmouth University’s Polling Institute.
