Trenton, We Have a Problem

A new Pew poll shows a big problem for Christie: 39 percent of Republicans say that there is no chance that they would support him.  By contrast...
Walker and Carson, in particular, are relatively unfamiliar potential candidates in the GOP race, but they fare well among the subset of Republican voters who have heard of them.
Just 57% of Republican and Republican-leaning voters have heard of Wisconsin Gov. Walker, yet 23% say there is a good chance they would vote for him and just 7% say there is no chance. And Carson has name recognition only among 48% of GOP voters, but 21% say there is a good chance he would get their vote while just 5% say there is no chance of this.

No Clear Leader in the GOP Field
