Chris Christie once said “they love me in Iowa.” A new NBC News/Marist poll indicates not so much. The poll released Thursday shows 33% of Republicans in Iowa have a negative view of the New Jersey governor, a rating that’s higher than other potential GOP presidential candidates tested in the NBC News/Marist poll. Christie’s negative numbers in Iowa are coupled with similar reviews in New Hampshire, where 31% of Republicans don’t view him positively.
