Described as “left-leaning” by Time magazine, Public Policy Polling surveyed New Jersey voters regarding their current governor’s political health, matching Christie against various Democratic candidates as well as famed NJ resident Springsteen. Turns out voters were split between The Guv. and The Boss, resulting in a 42-42 percent tie the rest undecided.

While Christie is an admitted fan of Springsteen, the same can’t be said regarding Springsteen’s views about the governor. Earlier this year Springsteen wrote a letter to his local newspaper criticizing Christie’s policies, claiming they are “eating away at the lower edges of the middle class.”

Although Springsteen hasn’t expressed a desire to run for public office, this isn’t the first time he’s been mentioned by others as a possible political candidate. Doug Friedline, the man who orchestrated pro-wrestler Jesse Ventura’s successful bid to become governor of Minnesota, attempted to start a grassroots campaign in 2002 to convince Springsteen to run for New Jersey’s U.S. Senate seat.
