Fall may soon be upon us, but perceptions of Governor Christie do not appear susceptible to seasonal shifts, good news if he decides to run for president in 2016. A new statewide poll of registered voters in New Jersey from Fairleigh Dickinson Universityâs PublicMind finds opinion remains divided over the governorâs job performance. The governorâs numbers are nearly the same as they have been since his popularity took a double-digit dive in the aftermath of Bridgegate revelations. Looking ahead to the 2016 presidential election, when pitted against Democratic heavyweight Hillary Clinton, Christie comes in a close second to the former Secretary of State, performing considerably better than some of his presumptive Republican challengers.
