New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has jumped from ninth place to fourth place among the GOP presidential field in New Hampshire, according to a new poll released Thursday.
Kasich, who’s made it a priority to focus on New Hampshire in his quest for the GOP nomination, is also dipping in the polls, falling from fourth in August and October to sixth in November.
