Posted on 07/22/2013 5:22:36 PM PDT by drewh
Hillary Clinton and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie are running neck-and-neck in a potential 2016 presidential match-up in Iowa, according to a new poll Monday.
Each was supported by 41 percent of voters in Iowa surveyed in the Quinnipiac poll. In a match-up with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Clinton was on top, 46 percent to 39 percent. Vice President Joe Biden trailed both Christie and Walker, 32 percent to 49 percent for Christie and 39 percent to 42 percent for Walker.
The poll also found that President Barack Obamas disapproval rating was at 55 percent, and only 40 percent of voters approved of the job he is doing. Thats a five point increase in disapproval since a May poll, and one of Obamas lowest approval ratings in any of the states Quinnipiac surveys, the polling institute said.

Obamas disapproval was also high among independent voters, an important constituency in the heavily independent state. Voters who identified as independent disapproved of the job the president is doing 59 percent to 37 percent. Thats up 6 points from the 53 percent of independents who disapproved in May.
While Iowa voters have a favorable opinion of Clinton, 52 percent to 41 percent, Biden is viewed unfavorably, 47 percent to 38 percent.
Quinnipiac surveyed 1,256 registered voters by phone from July 15-17 for the poll, which has an error margin of plus-minus 2.8 percentage points.

“What’s the Difference?”
Christie for President?
HELL F@#$ING NO.
Bunch of nothing. Neither will be at the top of their party’s ticket in 2016.
The other 18% threw up when the choices for the 2016 Presidential poll were mentioned.
Get the first Primary OUT of IOWA!
I will not vote for Christie or Jeb... I will probably go along with any other lame choice that is put on us in 2016

The girls are tied.
Christie!?? Are they kidding?
More phony polls pushing the ruling elite’s choice as Republican candidate for president.
Oh, Christie's a Republican? Nevermind...
Tied for what? The person we least want to see on television again?
More like no-neck and no-neck
Rosa Klebb and Krispie Kreme... Enough about the Democrat candidates. What about the Republicans ?
Two Lefties running against each other. Decisions, decisions.
Exactly..tied for what?....I think this next election will be the biggest farce of them all.....not sure yet if I’ll be “present” in that run. The game board is looking mighty lean overall....I see no hopefuls at this juncture.
If Christie ran as a moderate Democrat I might could support him. Especially if he knocked the PIAPS out of the race
