TRENTON - A new Quinnipiac University poll finds just over half of New Jersey voters approve of the job Gov. Chris Christie is doing, but only a quarter of those polled believe the Republican would make a good president.
The poll, released today, finds Christie's job approval rating at 51 percent, with 38 percent disapproving. But only 24 percent think he'd be good in the White House, compared to 61 percent who don't think so.
Most voters polled do not believe Christie will seek the presidency in 2012.
Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, the governor echoed voters? thoughts saying he won't run for the White House in 2012. Christie has not ruled out a run for the presidency in 2016.
