STATE – Less than a quarter of New Jersey voters want Gov. Chris Christie to run for president in 2012, according to a Rutgers-Eagleton poll released today.
Sixty-five percent oppose a Christie bid, 22 percent are in favor and 12 percent are unsure. Christie has repeatedly said he has no plans to seek the White House in 2012.
“The governor continues to deny any interest in running for president in 2012,” said David Redlawsk, director of the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll and professor of political science at Rutgers University. “Given these numbers, that’s a pretty good thing. Every time we’ve asked about a presidential run, New Jersey voters have overwhelmingly opposed the idea.”
Results are from a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll of 773 registered voters conducted with both landline and cell phone households from March 28 to April 4, with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.
