Poll: Majority Cannot Support Chris Christie in 2016

A new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey shows that Chris Christie is at the bottom of the pack among the 2016 GOP hopefuls, with the fewest number of voters saying they could support him for the nomination.

The December 10 poll found that a low of only 27 percent said they could support the New Jersey Governor. Fully 53 percent said they could not support him for 2016.

Christie had the worst showing of the major candidates, but neither former Florida Governor Jeb Bush nor failed 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney fared well, either.

For Bush, 57 percent said they could not support him while only 31 percent said they could. Romney received 63 percent against with only 33 percent in support.

As to other candidates, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee tallied 47 percent against him with 39 percent in his favor, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul had 47 percent in negatives with 34 percent in favor.

Democrats saw a more homogenous result with 82 percent saying that they would support Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination. Only 15 percent opposed her.
