.New Jersey Chris Christie's stock is dropping fast
A new Quinnipiac poll finds that instead of being the nation's hottest politician-which he was in January--he now ranks ninth.
The poll ranks people with a thermometer, and Christie, hurt by the George Washington Bridge closing controversy, is down to a 45.2 degree mean. He had been at a 55.5 degree mean.
Top rank now goes to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., at 48.6 degrees, but the poll adds that 46 percent don't know enough about her to have an opinion.
Never miss a local story.
Second is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton followed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Both are Republicans, and all four are mentioned as possible 2016 presidential candidates.
