SHARE Bad news, Christie: Hillary is more popular in N.J.

The bad news keeps coming for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. This time in comes from a poll that shows Hillary Clinton is more popular in New Jersey than he is, according to The Hill.

But it’s not just in New Jersey that she has mass appeal. Clinton also is more popular in New York than Gov. Andrew Cuomo and also edges out Gov. Terry McAuliffe in Virginia, according to a joint poll released Tuesday by Roanoke, Rutgers-Eagleton and Siena College. 

In all three states, Clinton has higher ratings than other potential GOP candidates including Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). The poll notes the three states contain 56 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House.

Here’s a closer look at the numbers from the poll:
