NJ Gov. Chris Christie Enjoying Healthy Lead Over Buono

Quinnipiac University show Christie leading 64 percent to 30 percent


In his bid for reelection, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie takes a whopping 34-point lead over his challenger, a new poll Wednesday shows.

Among likely general election voters, Christie leads his Democratic challenger, state Senator Barbara Buono, 64 percent to 30 percent, according the poll by Quinnipiac University, its first of likely voters. Christie's lead is not unexpected as Buono has struggled with name recognition among voters in New Jersey.
