  •  Clinton does less well with NJ men (0+ / 0-)

    than with Texas men.  So oddly, in Alaska, Louisiana, Montana, and Kansas, male voters there really won't vote for her at least in some of the polls, some of the time.  With the lowest support being Alaska, NJ, and Kansas men.

    I am not sure what the says of either Texas men or New Jersey men.  But not what I would have guessed.

    Is it possible she has more support among Southern men than previously thought?  Is it because she was Texas adjacent when she was first lady of Ark?  Do men from NJ resent her as a New Yorker?

    •  Well, Chris Christie is a native of New Jersey. (2+ / 0-)

      That might be a factor in why Clinton's getting relatively low numbers in some of the polls.

      •  But according to your diary, she beats Christie (0+ / 0-)

        or any R, 49 to 45, so Christie may be a factor but she's outpolling a theoretical Chris Christie in Blue NJ, according to your own data.  Also in the polls, she narrowly beats theoetical Republican by only one point, 46 to 45 in Red Texas.  But NJ men are the drag for her in NJ.  Why?

        I think there is more than a Chris Christie factor.  Unless Christie is intensely popular with men.  Is he?

        I like Clinton, even if she is a centrist Dem.  I believe she will be our strongest candidate, and I will vote for her (I did not support her in 2008) I just don't get why she does worse in NJ among men than she does in Texas among men.

        This is your diary, any thoughts?

        •  Who knows. (0+ / 0-)

          The gender gap amongst Christie supporters is one of the greatest in the nation; there's a huge difference in support for him amongst women and men.

          Or maybe the polls are just wrong.
