His time in New Hampshire is paying off, and his poll numbers are improving.

In fact, new data shows that in a head-to-head battle with Hillary Clinton, it is a tie in the Granite State.

However, in Iowa, the numbers are not so rosy.

More than half of Republicans say Christie is not conservative enough, with two-in-three possessing a negative view of him.

Christie trails Scott Walker, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz with just three percent of voter support.
