PPP: Lukewarm Support For Christie From Republicans Nationwide

Source: TPM



TOM KLUDT 7:22 AM EST, FRIDAY JANUARY 11, 2013

As New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) continues to enjoy enormous popularity at home, a poll released Thursday showed that Republicans nationwide aren't quite as enthusiastic about him as his constituents.

The national survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed 44 percent of Republican primary voters with a favorable opinion of Christie, compared 29 percent who have an unfavorable opinion of the outspoken governor. Only New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (R) and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) had lower favorability ratings than Christie among GOP voters.

When asked who they would prefer to see as the party's presidential nominee in 2016, Republicans gave the nod to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) over Christie.

1. Oh please let them nominate Huckabee or Ryan.

They will fare even more poorly than their fellow liar of the year in 2012.

9. Or even Rubio

He wouldn't get much more of the Latino vote than Romney did.

2. Christie dared to put citizens ahead of party politics

IF he could ever get through the tea-party primary he might have a chance nationally. But the tea-baggers will never let that happen because he refused to put party first when his state's citizens needed help.

3. And his biggest sin is that most of them were Democrats. Republicans are just evil.

4. But 2016 Is Still Far Enough Away For People & Parties To Change....

so I ask the question - Is Christie the new face of a party that has to make a change in order to survive or is he out there now trolling for independent votes or is he fixing to make a run on an independent ticket?

6. Good points. Christie would almost do better running as a Democrat

I'm not sure I could support him or not, I don't know enough about him. However, on the surface he sure doesn't seem like a tea-bagger.

5. Republicans don't want anybody that tries to get along with others.

Let them stay in their little cocoons and take another big round of losses.

10. The Republicans Would be Nuts *Not* to Nominate Christie in 2016

Instead, they'll probably stick with a social conservative who will lose. Just as well.
