    Christie has narrowed the gap and it is now a toss up if the 2016 election were held today. Christie would kill Clinton in the debates While I am not a big Christie fan would take him all day over Clinton

    " A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that if the 2016 presidential election were held today, 43% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose Democrat and former secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while 41% would opt for Chris Christie, New Jersey’s Republican governor, instead. Nine percent (9%) like some other choice, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Clinton has the support of 77% of Democrats, while 73% of Republicans back Christie. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, it’s Christie 42%, Clinton 33%.

    A. It's Rasmussen, i.e. total garbage
    B. President Gore says that the national popular vote means nothing
    C. No pub nominee will be able to "beat up" on the most popular national female candidate ever in debates without looking horrible

    Christie needs to do the debates as Ralph Kramden and find an Ed Norton to be his VP nominee. Then he can send Hillary to the moon without offending anyone.

    Clinton has offended so many people with "what difference does it make now" and keep showing the four dead Americans over and over will be a cake walk

    I don't mind Christie that much as a NJ Governor, but I imagine he'd have to bend over to the Christian Right/Tea Party, no matter how pragmatic he makes himself out to be

    I could see Christie appealing to a pretty broad spectrum. He'd get more moderates and Democrats than most Republicans. The question is whether he would make it through the primaries. He angered a lot of Republicans by working with Obama to help New Jersey after Sandy, when a lot of people wanted him to use it for political purposes instead.

    similar to how Clinton would have to bend to the Alinsky left???

    or aren't Dem nominees held hostage by the radical wing of the dem party??

    look no further than what happened to her last time she dismissed them before you answer

    Her approval is dropping like flies

    Sorry this not from Fox instead of NBC so you liberals could disown it

    Hillary Clinton, in addition to President Barack Obama, is facing declining approval numbers, a poll shows.

    Clinton has lost a majority of public approval dropping to 46 percent approval from 56 percent in April, according to the NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Wednesday. Thirty-three percent have a negative view of the former secretary of state.
    Continue Reading

    The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April among 18- to 34-year-olds who said they had a positive view of Clinton to 38 percent. Additionally, her approval rating among independents fell from 46 percent to 35 percent. Clinton’s approval among Democrats also fell by 12 points, from 88 percent in April to 76 percent in the most recent poll.

    As pubs liked to say when her numbers were at historic highs, it's a long way until 11/2016.

    Christie is a long shot to get the pub nomination anyhow with all the extremists he will have to subdue first.

    Christie is in a rough position. He will either have to run right in the primaries ad then face the same issues Romney faced when he did so, or try and win the primaries as a relative moderate which is hard in today's primary system on either side. He also has to hope that the same group of Todd Akin type pubs isn't running in 2016 as well.
    On Hillary's side, she was the presumptive nominee in 2008 and got beat by a guy with little money and little experience. She just wasn't that good a candidate. She does have a better resume this time around, but she also has be Benghazi, a failed previous bid that makes her look bad, sagging Obama numbers and nothing yet to show she is a better campaigner than last time.

    You'd have to be insane to vote for someone or their political party that is so rabidly partisan that they advocate shirking their responsibilities to their duly sworn duties to intentionally damage the POTUS.

    So which one is the Tea Party going to bitch about for the next four years.

    Don't ever want to see another Bush or Obama in office again, but that won't stop the sky is falling conservative wing from being red in the face mad for the next four.
