A recent survey has revealed that Bruce Springsteen has a fair chance of being elected as governor of his home state New Jersey, during the 2013 elections.
The Public Policy Polling survey discovered that if he decided to enter the race against Republican Governor Chris Christie in the 2013 elections, Springsteen and Christie are neck and neck in terms of popularity.
Christie has recently seen a significant decline in his voters and according to the survey, if he were to run against the legendary singer, he would be at a 42 percent disadvantage, the Daily News reported.
Only four percent of Republicans who took the survey are undecided about their vote, meanwhile democrats are at around 23 percent.
"If Springsteen ran and came across as a credible candidate, he'd likely see a large increase in that Democratic support," pollsters said in a statement.

The singer is widely known for his left-leaning views and is quit different from Christie politically.
The number makes it accessible for someone with the popularity and following that the rock star has, to enter the race with a promising chance.
It is currently unknown if Springsteen will decide to run for Governor of the Garden State in the future. A publicist from Springsteen's camp had no comment on the poll and did not mention if the rock star will take on the governor challenge.
