Iowa Poll: Hillary Clinton, Chris Christie Tied (41-41%)
Politico ^ | 7/22/13 7:24 EDT | By TAL KOPAN

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 Obama’s disapproval rating was at 55 percent, and only 40 percent of voters approved of the job he is doing. That’s a five point increase in disapproval since a May poll, and one of Obama’s lowest approval ratings in any of the states Quinnipiac surveys, the polling institute said.

Obama’s 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. That’s 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.

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.

Once again the left is trying to pick the GOP candidate. Either winning the election is a win for the marxists, and a loss for conservatives.

If Christie ran as a moderate Democrat I might could support him. Especially if he knocked the PIAPS out of the race

Where are the polls that show the result of...

HRC vs Ted Cruz?
vs Rand Paul?

I think these pollsters know the answer and are afraid it goes against their liberal narrative.

Where are the polls that show the result of...

HRC vs Ted Cruz?

vs Rand Paul?

I think these pollsters know the answer and are afraid it goes against their liberal narrative.

PPP, which is further left than Q-pac, included Paul in head-to-head matchups. The results were quite interesting; Paul actually did one point better than Christie, but lost to HRC by 4 more points than Christie does because a lot of the "not sures" switched to HRC.

So at least right now, Paul is more popular than Christie with Republicans, but the gain in votes from Paul gets more than wiped out by moderates being frightened into voting for HRC by Paul.

PPP didn't include Cruz in Head-to-Head, but did include him in the Republican nomination; he was 6th, with Paul leading.

Most people in Iowa probably don't even know who Cruz is. Remember that Iowa Republicans, the Iowa electorate, and the real world, for that matter, bear little resemblance to Free Republic.

Iowa has caucuses restricted to each party.

There’s an idiotic and pointless straw poll in Iowa that has nothing to do with choosing delegates or the caucuses.

I’m not buying this. This is just the left trying to select the GOOB nominee again. Politico probably has a load of Christie’s skeletons ready to go. Barry didn’t take Christie on those long strolls along the beach just to look at the damage. Barry was getting information from him.

I can’t fathom why someone would expect Christie to not poll better than anyone else right now.

He has by far the best name recognition of anyone in the poll, has had the least unfavorable media coverage, and for the broad majority of the population, has the least people that actively hate him.

Iowa Poll: Hillary Clinton, Chris Christie Tied (41-41%)

That makes perfect sense. Chris Christie recently stated that he agrees with the liberal NY Governor Andrew Cuomo on 98% of the issues. I've no doubt that Hillary likewise agrees with Andrew Cuomo, so the polling between Hillary and Christie should be a tie since they believe in almost exactly the same things.

But in a year the media will squawk that conservatives like Cruz or Paul aren’t well known to the voters and will likely lose. And wonder what those guys did wrong.

The first conservative who ever tells independent primary voters to purposely shun the brainwashing MSM, and totally think for themselves, will win.

I haven't watched him very close, but I am thinking John Kasich will surprise many by getting into the presidential race. I'd love to at least win Ohio again. That was a pretty reliable state for a short while.

We need a republican governor, but one from a state where the candidate does not have to lean left to get elected.

I am not saying Kasich will be the best option, but honestly.... we don't have many to select from any more.
