Likely N.J. voters say 48-41 percent that they want to see Chris Christie run for president.
A Quinnipiac University poll released today shows that with the governor’s re-election seemingly in hand, respondents want him to run for the White House in 2016.
As for his race against Sen. Barbara Buono, Christie leads 64– 31 percent, the poll shows.
Christie gets a 65–29 percent favorability rating, as even 40 percent of Democrats have a favorable opinion, the poll shows. Buono gets a negative 26–37 percent favorability rating, with 35 percent who don’t know enough about her to form an opinion.
“From the banks of the Delaware to the beaches of the Atlantic, New Jersey voters like their governor, Christopher Christie. On the banks of the Potomac? Less like the governor, but still a lot,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
As for the Nov. 5 election?
“The election looks like a runaway. Even almost a third of Democrats pick Christie over state Sen. Barbara Buono. She’s been an energetic campaigner, but more than a third of voters don't know enough about her to decide whether or not they like her,” Carroll added.

"It sounds like Councilman Baraka is talking about regionalization similar to what happened to the Camden Police Department. Clearly, if you regionalize, there is going to be a layoff of Newark workers. We cant afford to have more cops laid off right now. During Mr. Baraka's time on the council, the city laid off about 170 cops, when has led to our streets being much more dangerous than they need to be." - Newark Mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries, the former state Assistant Attorney General, referring to the disbandment of the South Jersey police force.- PolitickerNJ.com
