The Christie comeback continues, sort of

As Gov. Chris Christie’s nationwide fundraising tour rolls on, talk of his political resurrection is picking up steam.

This week, the Washington Post wrote about the governor’s recovery from Bridgegate and what it would take for a successful 2016 presidential run.

The piece highlighted Christie’s record fundraising and recently rising numbers in some polls.

A Quinnipiac University poll out today, though, did not paint a completely rosy picture.

The poll shows that the governor’s approval numbers are trending upward, but most New Jersey voters do not want him to run for president nor do they think he’d make a good one.

Instead, New Jerseyans prefer Hillary Clinton as the nation’s next president. Christie continues to trail Clinton in a hypothetical match-up.
