NJ Governor Christie far behind Obama in Presidential survey

June 11, 2011 - Washington

New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie does not tand up as well against President Barack Obama now as he did just a few months go, according to a poll.

According to a new national poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University's Public Mind, in a head-to-head match-up against Obama, Christie trails 34 to 50 percent, a backslide from 40 to 46 percent measured in March, Politico reports.

The survey also confirms a trend that other New Jersey surveys have shown. It showed Christie's in-state approval rating has slipped, from 51 percent positive, 41 percent negative, to an even split at 44 percent.

The poll also suggested that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney fares the best in the Republican field against Obama, trailing by six percent.
