Christie Has Huge Lead In Governor's Race, Poll Shows

A Quinnipiac University poll released this week shows Chris Christie with a big lead over his Democratic challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono.

Gov. Chris Christie is the best person to lead New Jersey for the next four years, according to voters polled in a survey released this week by Quinnipiac University.

Christie, a Republican, leads his Democratic rival, state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-Middlesex), 62 percent to 25 percent in the state's 2013 gubernatorial race, according to the poll. 

The governor's overall approval rating also remains high. Buoyed by public perception of the way he handled Hurricane Sandy's impact and its aftermath, Christie's 74 percent approval rating and 69 percent favorable rating tie his personal record highs from January, the Huffington Post reports.

Christie appears to have strong support on the other side of the aisle as well. 

In the poll, 56 percent of Democrats said they approve of the Republican governor and 48 percent said he deserves reelection. 

Although Christie wasn't the GOP's final choice for vice-president in last year's presidential election, if he decides to run for president in 2016, it seems he'll have strong support in his home state. 

Poll results showed 49 percent of voters supporting Hillary Clinton and 45 percent voting for Christie in that race. 

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,149 registered voters for the poll.

He did great work in assisting the families hurt by Sandy. Now he has to work on getting jobs for all the civil employees fired by him. The communites in N.J require to have the best services possible being one of the richest state in the country. with the start of growth in the real estate market, it should be easier to do so.
