Hillary Clinton seems to be benefiting from the bridge scandal plaguing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is slipping further away in a 2016 matchup, according to a new poll.

Clinton leads the Republican governor by 16 points, 55 percent to 39 percent of the vote among registered voters, a poll by CNN/ORC released Monday shows. In a December CNN poll, Christie held the lead over Clinton 48 percent to 46 percent.

The biggest impact appears to be felt from independent voters. Christie’s support among that demographic dropped to 39 percent from 59 percent in December.

Christie also no longer leads the pack of Republican contenders. Instead, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee claims the top spot as 14 percent of Republicans and independents who lean Republican say they would support him as the party’s candidate.
