Here is something you don’t see everyday, a Republican who is more popular with Democrats than he is within his own party. A new poll by Public Policy Polling says that Gov. Chris Christie is viewed more favorably by Democrats than Republicans. The data says that 52 percent of Democrats nationally view the state’s governor in a favorable light, versus 48 percent of Republicans. Overall, Christie has a 51 to 23 percent gap of positive to negative among those polled.
