    Some highlights:

    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.

    If the Hildabeast is the candidate, expect a campaign so dirty it will make Obama's 2 look like a walk in the park. Funny thing in that Virginia election of the buddy of the Clinton's-fake Lib candidate funded by the dems? If true, that has bubba's fingerprints all over it. They wanted their crony in to help in the purple state's electoral votes. Digusting.

    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.

    It makes me sick if thats true, they needed to fund a 3rd party guy AND pull in all the Dem big guns to win 3% of the vote. They are squaking like its a landslide

    They will do whatever it takes. We're in for a really long dirty fight.

    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.

    Was his opponent well known locally? From `1100 miles away, we know a lot about Christie but I can't even name his opponent without looking it up. The same could not be said for Virginia.

    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.

    Not true. Tom Kean was right of center. Kean actually won re-election in a bigger landslide than Christie and unlike Christie, Kean had no national aspirations so he focused on the state. Unfortunately, there wasn't a viable Republican candidate to succeed him and the state elected the biggest crook this side of Clinton in Jim Florio(I still see Florio Free in '93 stickers on light poles once in a while). Florio was so bad that Christine Whitman won the '93 election. She was pretty decent in her first go 'round but her 2nd term was as lame duck as you're going to get. She ended up being a horrible governor and her antics led to us electing the closet fag McGreevey who traded sexual favors for a high ranking spot. His ex-wife is a cutie though. She can shoot daggers with the best of them. Check her out on the stand during her divorce from Jim:
