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.

Some people who were surveyed in the poll say that Donald Trump may be to blame for the governor’s decrease in support. Thirty-two percent of people polled think Christie would be doing better if Trump was not in the race.

The poll had a margin of error of 3.9 percent.
