NEW BRUNSWICK - A recent Rutgers-Eagleton poll finds that Gov. Chris Christie is losing support for his presidential bid from the people in New Jersey.

The poll found that only 5 percent of New Jersey Republican voters are supporting the governor.

This is down from 12 percent only a few months ago in August.

The poll also found that nearly two-thirds of those surveyed say that Gov. Christie should drop out of the race.

The poll had a margin of error of 3.9 percent.
