Would Christie win in 2016?

A new poll is out with a mixed bag of numbers for Gov. Chris Christie and his prospects of winning the 2016 presidential election.

The numbers show that Christie is among the leaders of a weak field for the Republican nomination, but still falls short against Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic candidate.

Christie possesses a 37 percent favorable view from Americans, while 38 percent have an unfavorable view.

There is still, of course, two years until all of this plays, but Christie may be getting some help from an unlikely source.

President Barack Obama is reportedly against the idea of Clinton succeeding him in office, and may instead put his weight behind Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for the Democratic nod.

Obama has been non-committal publicly, so far, about 2016, but the report says he worries that Clinton may undermine many of his policies.
