NJ Republican voters who think Christie would hurt a Trump ticket

New Jersey Republicans are lining up behind Donald Trump, with 79 percent saying they will vote for him in November, according to the most recent Monmouth University poll.
Only six percent say they will vote for Hillary Clinton; six percent, for an independent; six percent haven’t decided; and 3 percent said they won’t vote.

But loyalty to the state’s GOP governor is not what’s driving the support of Trump, since only 34 percent said they would be more likely to vote for a delegate slate headed by Chris Christie, and 13 percent said it would make it less likely.

What’s more, 41 percent of those surveyed said they thought Trump would be hurt if he chose Christie as his running mate, and only 15 percent said it would help.
