This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The 2016 presidential election is still three years away but an NBC News poll released Tuesday morning, is taking an early snapshot of what the race could look like.

The poll looks into the hypothetical presidential matchup of Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Chris Christie.

If the 2016 general election were held now, Clinton would get 44-percent of the support while Christie would get 34 percent.

Former Secretary of State Clinton leads Governor Christie among African Americans, people between the ages of 18-49, and Hispanics.

Clinton has a narrow lead among independents. Christie leads among whites, seniors and respondents with the highest incomes.

Clinton also appears to have stronger support in her own party than Christie.

The NBC News poll has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.6-percentage points.

    I believe that Chris Christie is a very dangerous opponent for the Democrats. His runaway reelection in a state that normally favors Democrats by a wide margin is no fluke. Most of the undecided in the early polls will go to Christie, not Clinton. Christie’s strong Hispanic support and the likelihood that he could pull in New Jersey and Pennsylvania (Both Democratic-leaning states) makes him a dangerous opponent.
