Christie attacks pollster who found him trailing in N.H.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie blasted a top pollster who found him trailing several Republican presidential candidates in the early primary state of New Hampshire.

"First of all, it's a Monmouth University poll, so you guys should know by now that the Monmouth University polls [are] created just to aggravate me," Christie reportedly told members of the press during a campaign stop in New Hampshire. "Just look at Patrick Murray and his tweets, there couldn't be a less objective pollster about Chris Christie in America."

Murray is the executive director of the polling institute at Monmouth University. In the institute's latest poll, Christie placed among the bottom half of GOP candidates with just 4 percent support among likely Republican voters in New Hampshire.

"Despite spending much of his time [in New Hampshire], Christie does much better as a second choice rather than the first pick," Murray said in a press release Tuesday.
