THE NBC NEWS/MARIST POLL HAS CLINTON LEADING CHRISTIE WITH 50 PERCENT OF REGISTERED VOTERS SURVEYED SAYING THEY’D VOTE FOR HER IF SHE WERE UP AGAINST THE NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR; JUST 37 PERCENT OF THOSE WOULD BACK CHRISTIE AGAINST CLINTON.
The poll presents sharp gains for Clinton in the last month; in the same survey IN DECEMBER, CLINTON LED CHRISTIE BY A MERE 3 PERCENTAGE POINTS, 48 PERCENT TO HIS 45 PERCENT.
