As Chris Christie gears up for a potential 2016 bid, it looks like he’ll have trouble even wrangling his own state.
In a new Quinnipiac poll, nearly 3 in 5 registered voters in New Jersey do not think their Republican governor would make a good president, according to Reuters.
Overall, 57 percent of the registered voters polled said they did not think Christie would make a good president, including nearly a third of registered Republicans, 78 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of independents.
In a hypothetical race between Christie and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 52 percent of the poll respondents said they would vote for Clinton, a Democrat, including 11 percent of registered Republicans.
