#1 Interesting Exit Poll Numbers From Christie's Re-Election11-06-2013, 02:58 AM
57% of female voters voted for Christie
21% of blacks voted for Christie
51% of Hispanics voted for Christie
66% of senior citizens voted for Christie
66% of independents voted for Christie
These are voting blocks that went heavily for Obama in 2012(save for seniors). NJ is as blue a state as you're going to get and Christie got a majority vote from some pretty left leaning groups. I bring this up because he's going to ride this like a surfer come 2016.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

This is another instance where the Dems WANT this guy to be the nominee so they can chop him off at the knees and have four more years of Socialism.
There are sleleton's in his closet the left is DYING to drag out if he runs. And they will. And they are serious things that the GOP should seriously distance themselves from...but they won't.
The media will stoke this clown's enormous ego and be nice to him right up to the moment he (God forbid) becomes the nominee then the'll kneecap him just like they did McCain.

Christie is probably up for a long and ugly fight more than some other candidates-in that sense, he would be a good candidate for 2016.
On the other hand, Hillary (if she runs) will run as a centrist, which is what Christie actually is. Hillary is not as far left as Obama, so she will push a little more to the center during the campaign. If Christie remains a centrist GOP candidate, then there really isn't much difference between the two for the general public, some conservatives stay home on election day and the whole thing will come down to who can damage the other the most.

NJ is not nearly as Blue (In just D-R voting terms) as all the pundits, especially those who like Christie for 2016, want to portray it. Republican governors have won as often as not over the past 20 years. However, what is called a "Republican" in NJ is wildly different than what that word means in Indiana, Missouri, Florida, or anywhere else out here in flyover country.
A New Jersey Republican is closer to what is known as a 'Mainstream Democrat' in all those places than what they would call a 'Republican,' while a New Jersey Democrat is more like a British Socialist or German Social Democrat than like anything that would have a chance as a Democrat out here in the sticks.
