Gov. Christie would lead Republican candidates in presidential primary, poll shows

May 4, 2011

By Ginger Gibson,

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie outperformed 17 other potential candidates in a poll released today that asked likely Republican primary voters to pick a presidential nominee.

Of the 500 people surveyed in a Rasmussen poll, 30 percent said they would “definitely” vote for Christie, 22 percent said they would “probably” vote for the New Jersey governor, and another 22 percent they would vote against him. The remaining 26 percent said they were unsure.

Christie has repeatedly said he is not running for president in 2012.

The poll, which had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points, asked respondents about 18 candidates and whether they would definitely or probably vote for or against a particular candidate.

Christie received stronger support than the other Republicans, including Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, who each had 26 percent of those polled say they would “definitely” vote for them.
