New Jersey voters oppose Chris Christie as potential Trump VP pick

While likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is rumored to have New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on his short list of potential vice presidential picks, New Jersey voters don’t share Trump’s enthusiasm for their governor and oppose the idea of him as Trump’s running mate by a 4-to-1 margin.

According to a new Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday, 72 percent of New Jersey voters oppose the idea of Christie as Trump’s vice president pick, while 18 percent are in favor.

Among Republicans, 64 percent said they disapprove compared to 27 percent who are in favor of a Trump/Christie ticket.
