In a survey of 1100 American voters including 400 Democrat primary voters and 563 Republican voters by Public Policy Polling, the Governor loses a tight battle with soon-to-be-former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 44-42%.

Christie is in the middle of the pack for potential GOP nominees, tying Florida Governor Jeb Bush with support from 14% those polled. Florida Senator Marco Rubio leads the pack with 21%, Congressman Paul Ryan comes in at 16%, Mike Huckabee at 15%, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul gets 3% and  Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal 3%. Texas Governor Rick Perry and New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez tie for last with 2% each.

Christie’s recent demonstrations of compromise also gets him in trouble with some Republicans. While he gets 32% of the moderate Republican vote only 4% of those who consider themselves “very conservative” would vote for Christie.

Those polled gave Christie a 44% favorability rating, the weakest of the potential candidates.
