Republicans everywhere, take note – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie could win re-election in November with significant support from Democrats, Latinos and African-Americans, according to a new poll.

The outspoken Republican governor, seen as a potential presidential candidate someday, leads his Democrat opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono, 58 to 30 percent among all likely voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

Latinos, notably, were virtually split in the poll, with 41 percent saying they would vote for Christie, and 43 percent giving the nod to Buono.

No other racial or ethnic group identified in the poll, in fact, came close to Latinos as far as being split over whom they prefer for governor.
