New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is cruising to a landslide win next week--that's no surprise. The bigger question is what this could mean to a presidential bid, and there the numbers are somewhat mixed.
A new Quinnipiac University poll puts Christie ahead 64-31 percent in his bid for another term as governor. But New Jersey likely voters split 48-41 about whether they want him to run for president.
Asked if he would make a good president, Republicans overwhelmingly say yes. But Democrats overwhelmingly say no, and independents are split--43 percent yes, 39 percent no.
Then again, 40 percent of Democrats in the state have a favorable impression of Christie.
The governor has been frequently mentioned as a possible Republican contender, despite his center-right leanings.
