Poll: Obama, Menendez on top in New Jersey

TRENTON - A new poll shows Gov. Chris Christie running for vice president wouldn't help the Republican presidential ticket carry New Jersey in November.

The Quinnipiac University survey finds President Barack Obama with a 10-point lead over Republican hopeful Mitt Romney in a one-on-one matchup among Garden State registered voters.

Adding Christie as Romney's running mate shaves off just 2 points for the GOP.

Fifty-two percent of the registered voters compared to 36 percent say Christie wouldn't be happy as vice president.

The governor has said that he would discuss the topic of vice president with Romney if he was asked.
