Christie continues to be largely reviled by GOP voters- only 26% have a favorableThat finding confirms a March Gallup poll:
opinion of him to 49% with an unfavorable one and he's even polling now behind Carly
Fiorina. In addition to Christie and Bush, 3 other GOP hopefuls are under water even
with their own party's voters- Donald Trump at 38/43, George Pataki at 10/30, and
Lindsey Graham at 16/39. Although Graham is unpopular it's not clear that his being
single has much to do with the problem- 76% of GOP voters say it makes no difference
to them whether a candidate is married with 15% saying they're less likely to vote for one who isn't and 4% more likely.
Of 11 potential candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Mike Huckabee and Jeb Bush are the most well-known and have the highest net favorable ratings among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. While Chris Christie is one of the most familiar Republican figures among the party base, he has the lowest net favorable rating.
