Christie Looking Good in Theoretical Race With Booker

New Jersey Governor is seeking re-election in November 2013


As New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's approval rating  continues to soar to record highs a day after he announced his intention to seek a second term as governor, a new poll shows him crushing Newark Mayor Cory Booker in a theoretical 2013 governor race.

Booker, a Democrat, is widely considered to be Christie's staunchest potential opponent in a 2013 campaign. But the poll, from Rutgers-Eagleton, gives Christie a nearly 20-point lead over Booker.
