Zogby: GOP gives Christie the edge for Prez

More Republicans want Gov. Chris Christie for president than any other candidate, according to a Zogby poll released Tuesday.

The poll shows 17 percent of GOP voters want Christie. Businessman Herman Cain comes in second, with 14 percent, followed by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), with 10 percent. An additional ten candidates failed to get double digits.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, whom 9 percent of Republican voters want to win the nomination, is the most likely nominee for president, according to 31% of those polled.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty received 8% of backing from Republican voters.

Christie as recently as Monday said he has no intention of running for president.
