Gov. Chris Christie has been hyper-focused on New Hampshire as he prepares a run for president, but he may want to take a look at Iowa.

Christie received just four percent in a recent straw poll, trailing eight of the other announced or potential candidates.

More troubling is that 45 percent said they could never vote for Christie, and six-in-ten Iowa Republicans have a negative view of him.

However, he had similar numbers in New Hampshire before he began a series of Town Hall meetings.
