New Quinnipiac Poll Has Christie Beating Hillary By One Point in 2016
The poll is meaningless but the demographic breakdowns are worth noting.
Newly reelected New Jersey Governor Chris Christie tops former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by one point, 43 percent to 42 percent.
Please be aware that this poll taken three years before the November 8, 2016 presidential election means absolutely nothing.
However, the results below might serve as a baseline snapshot of the key demographic groups that will determine who captures the White House in 2016.
- Clinton wins women by a margin of 48 to 39 percent.
- Christie wins men by 47 to 35 percent.
- Christie wins Independent voters by 48 to 32 percent.
- Christie wins white voters by 50 to 35 percent.
- Clinton wins black voters by 77 to 12 percent.
- Clinton wins Hispanic voters by 46 to 38 percent.
It is also important to note that last week a widely reported NBC News survey had Clinton up 10 points over Christie.
Could Clinton’s one week fall signal a severe negative reaction to Obamacare?
Or, is it a reflection of all the national media attention that Christie received since his landslide victory on November 5 in New Jersey?
Once again, this latest poll means nothing — except maybe it does.
Note from Myra: I am NOT supporting Chris Christie for President in 2016. I am not supporting anyone at this time in 2013.
