Description

TRENTON — Dogged by the widening George Washington Bridge scandal, Gov. Chris Christie is seeing his chances against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plummet in a hypothetical 2016 presidential race, according to a new nationwide poll of voters. The McClatchy-Marist poll released today shows Christie, a Republican, trailing Clinton, who is also a former Democratic senator from New York, by 21 percentage points, 58 to 37 percent, in the mock matchup. For Christie, the new figures presented an 8 point drop from the group's last poll in mid-January, when the governor trailed Clinton by 13 percentage points, 50 to 37 percent. And it's an 18-point fall from a December poll that showed Christie trailing her 48 to 45 percent in the days before revelations that the closing of access lanes to the bridge were politically motivated.
