The latest ABC News/Washington Post survey showed Clinton polling at 53 percent among registered voters nationwide in the hypothetical matchup against Christie, who garnered 41 percent support.

The poll also showed that 46 percent of voters believe the politically motivated lane closures on the George Washington Bridge are a sign of larger problems with Christie's leadership, compared with 43 percent who said it was just an isolated incident.

An NBC/Marist poll earlier this month showed Clinton with a 13-point lead over Christie after a survey in December showed the two neck-and-neck.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
