Christie camp comments on new polls

Chris Christie campaign manager Bill Stepien said that polls released this morning confirm that Christie remains the frontrunner not just in the gubernatorial primary, but for the general election.

"Two new polls continue to show encouraging news for Chris Christie. The bottom line is that I'd rather be Chris than any other candidate right now,” he said. “Chris has a substantial lead in both the primary and general election polls, a significant fundraising advantage in the primary and grassroots support in all corners of the state, as evidenced by him winning every single county convention.”

Stepien was referring to a Quinnipiac poll and a Strategic Vision poll, both released this morning.

“Poll after poll shows the same thing – Chris Christie is the only candidate in this race that has the grassroots support and vision for change to beat Governor Corzine in November,” said Stepien. Christie camp comments on new polls
