EDISON - A Quinnipiac University Poll out today finds that six out of 10 New Jersey residents don't believe Gov. Chris Christie's claim that he would beat President Barack Obama in a 2012 White House run

About 46 percent of those polled say they like Obama and his policies, while 38 percent say the same about Christie.

Focusing strictly on job approval, the governor's 47-46 rating is down from the 52-40 he got in February. But Christie still enjoys a higher approval than other elected politicians in the state. Obama gets a 51-45 percent job approval in the poll.
