A majority of New Jersey voters think that their governor, Chris Christie (R), would not be a good president, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.

The survey finds that 55 percent of voters in the state think that Christie would not be a good president; 39 percent think he would be.

Those who don't want him to run for president outnumber those who do. Forty-six percent say they would like to see him run; 49 percent say they wouldn't. 

New Jersey is a blue state, but as recently as last November, 60 percent of voters backed Christie in his commanding re-election victory.

Since then, he has been wounded by revelations of improper lane closures to the George Washington Bridge linked to his administration.

Christie is still seen as a possible 2016 presidential contender, and has been campaigning around the country as head of the Republican Governors Association. 

Christie's favorability is evenly split at 47 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable. He has fallen from 66 percent favorability last July, before the bridge revelations.
