 2016 poll: Chris Christie 43, Hillary Clinton 42

A new poll finds former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie virtually tied in a potential 2016 matchup.

Christie takes 43 percent in the Quinnipiac poll, compared with 42 percent for Clinton. Christie’s strength comes in part from his strong showing among independents: he leads among the group by 16 points, 48 percent to 32 percent. He also leads among men and white voters, and comes within 12 points of Clinton among Hispanic voters — far above 2012 GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s performance with that demographic. Clinton’s strength is with women (she leads 48-39 percent) and black voters (she leads 77-12 percent).

Clinton has big leads against other potential GOP presidential contenders. She leads both Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) by 9 points, 49-40 percent, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) by 15 points, 51-36 percent.

The poll also found that voters are split over which party they’d prefer to vote for in their own congressional district: Democrats and Republicans each take 39 percent. That’s a big change from early last month, when Quinnipiac found Democrats leading Republicans by 9 points in the generic ballot test, 43-34 percent.

Still, voters disapprove of congressional Republicans at higher rates than they do of congressional Democrats: voters disapprove of Republicans more than they approve by a 53-percent margin (73 percent to 20 percent), compared with a 32-point margin (62 percent to 30 percent) for Democrats.

The poll surveyed 2,545 registered voters from Nov. 6 to Nov. 11, and has a margin of error of +/- 1.9 percent.
