Hillary Clinton buries Gov. Chris Christie and other potential Republican presidential candidates in the crucial swing state of Ohio, according to a new poll on Thursday.
The former secretary of state, who led Christie 42 percent to 41 percent in November, now tops the New Jersey governor 49 percent to 36 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
Of those polled, 55 percent said Clinton would make a good president, while 39 said she would not. Only 31 percent of voters said Christie would make a good president, plummeting from 44 percent in November.
Not only are Clinton’s numbers against Christie skyrocketing, but she bests the rest of the potential GOP field. She takes the biggest lead over Sen. Ted Cruz, 51 percent to 34 percent, and wins out over Rep. Paul Ryan 49 percent to 40 percent.
She leads Sen. Marco Rubio by 50 percent to 36 percent and Sen. Rand Paul 51 percent to 28 percent.
Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,370 registered voters from Feb. 12-17 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
