    For those so inclined, it might appear that he tossed his staffer out as a scapegoat in order to cover his ass.

    In fact, I'm betting everyone opposed to him will use something along those lines, unless some evidence of same or of something else surfaces...

From what I see in the break down of the polls, Christie strength is with independents, not so much within the republican party. Today only 18% of Republicans want him as their nominee. But Christie would defeat Clinton in the general election match up because independents prefer him over Clinton by a 49% to 26% margin.

    It seem independent like him a whole lot more than Republicans


    I think it is pretty funny that you guys consider Christy to be a RHINO... He is anti abortion and anti labor, what more do you want?

    He did very well yesterday, but my guess he is not home free yet. You have to remember a 91 year old woman allegedly died because of the bridge closure.

    As I understand it, she would have died anyway, and if he had nothing to do with it then he had nothing to do with it.

    Absolutely. And IF CC gets the GOP nod, the wingnuts WILL hold their nose and vote for him, anyways, before they vote for Hilda.

    Christie is the only hope I see for the GOP to regain the oval office. But there's plenty of time for the dynamics to change a dozen times yet.
    that's what everyone said about Romney.

    As for Christie as the GOP candidate? I'm not thrilled with it - the man isn't loyal to conservatism and he isn't loyal to the party, he's loyal purely and only to Christie and as a subset, the Image Of Christie. He's acerbic towards his opposition, and fails utterly to even give them the benefit of good intentions. "Independents" and "moderates" who think they like him now might start revising their opinion the fourth or fifth time he calls them a bunch of racist idiots for opposing his immigration policies.

    I will say that out of the group of horrible Republican candidates that ran last year they were probably right about Romeny.

    I do share some of your concerns about Christie's personality, but I still think he's still probably one of the most electable candidates whose names are being floated around.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    They were saying that before the field was even established.

    More so than Paul or Cruz et. al, certainly, but the next President doesn't need to be a one-term Senator if that can be avoided. Governors Walker and Jindal are both better candidates than Christie.

    Them saying that was probably premature, but he did look a lot better than anyone seeming to consider a bid besides Mitch Daniels IMO. (Just in terms of electability not in terms of who I'd want to win).

    I could see Walker being a good candidate. Jindal, I seem to remember heavily dropping off in Lousiana for some reason. It sounds to me like he could have some problems. Mitch Daniels and Brian Sandoval are another two I think could be better than Christie.

    You're talking to the wrong person here. I am a member of the Reform Party. What is left of it anyway. Christie is not mine and neither are the Republicans or the Democrats. Besides, it is RINO, Republican in Name Only. It is sort of like some Democrats referring to Joe Manchin as a DINO, Democrat in Name Only. The ones who do this are your hard core extreme left or right partisans. I used the term RINO as that is how a lot of Republicans view him.

    I personally like Christie and if the contest was between him and Clinton, I would vote for Christie.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
