    Not a scientific poll by any means, but this might be fun to revisit in a couple of years.

    Assuming that the GOP candidate is Chris Christie and the Democrats choose Hillary, what do you think the results will be come November 2016?

    My choice would of course be Chris Cristie. I would predict that RJ would go 99.5% for Hillary and that there will only be five or six of us out of 350,000 for Christie.

    The below is a very unscientific AOL poll conducted this morning

    Poll on potential Chris Christie vs. Hillary Clinton 2016 match-up

    After Chris Christie's easy re-election to a second term as New Jersey's governor, many observers are talking about his win's implications for the 2016 presidential election. We can't help but wonder: If the nominees are Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton, who would you vote for?

    Chris Christie
    56%
    Hillary Clinton
    44%

    Total votes: 17024

    Will say that I think the POTUS debates between these two would likely be hilarious.

    Aristoshark saidThat poll was Freeped. Pew Research put out a poll this morning that said she would win that matchup by 5 points.

    All academic because he won't be the nominee.


    As I said

    "A just for fun poll"

    It is looking like the biggest battle will be the one within the GOP itself. Christie would appear to be the GOP candidate with wider appeal, but the tea baggers utterly loathe him, because he did not follow the conservative mantra that Obama is the devil incarnate.

    This indicates to me that you fear he could win.

    The presidency is a physically demanding job.
    Christie? Really?

    I've always preferred Biden to both Obama and Hillary Clinton. Maureen Dowd had a funny but peceptive op-ed about Biden in today's New York Times. As for the GOP, all bets are off regarding their nominee until we see how their internal civil war between the Tea Party wing and the mainstream of their party plays out.

    You really are dumber than rocks.
    Nothing I said or did indicates that I give a damn who the GOP nominates, because none of them will win. But Christie's not being able to be nominated isn't my wishful thinking. Go read your right-wing sites like freerepublic.com and witness how much and how angrily they hate him. They actually believe----you probably do too---that Romney was winning until Gov. Mayonnaise hugged Obama.


    True, it's just hilarious that Governor Christie, like so many people, struggles with some demons and we certainly should demonize them for that just like we would someone with HIV, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's', MS, CPOD, RA, etc.

    Really Christie. That is if you have the 'presence of mind' to keep it open.

    You're right, it was a cheap shot. My bad.


    It's a nasty struggle. I put all of my weight back on that I so proudly lost last winter. Not as fat, but as beef, but still my heart has to pump through all of that. And with genetic high blood pressure .... not so smart.

    thebearerofbadnews saidit's obvious that christie is going to be the president.

    i also think that cory booker is going to be his running mate. that's probably the plan all along. booker is now down in washington and now he's basically setting up show so christie could take the driver seat. obama already working with christie.


    You think Christie is going to be President, and Cory Booker is going to be his Vice-President...do you also hear voices and see dead people?

    Of course, I hope Republicans nominate Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. But if they want to try their hand at another anti-gay Northeasterner who is hated by the base of his party and who won't even win his home state, that works too. #theyneverlearn

    This is certainly true. It will be as fun to revisit as all those unscientific unskewed conservative polls that had Romney beating Obama.

    I'm going to bookmarking these predictions right now. icon_lol.gif

    This poll is useless. Freerepublic.com, a site so right-wing that even Lucianne Goldberg (Jonah's mom and exploiter of Linda Tripp) disavowed it, regularly does what it calls "Freeping" a poll. Meaning they flood an online poll with their own people in order to skew the results in a right-wing direction, and then trumpet the results as "proof" that The People support them. The link I provided above shows this in action. This whole thing is a pointless sham.


    As I clearly stated in my OP

    "The below is a very unscientific AOL poll conducted this morning "

    Cheap shot? You don't think Alzheimer's is disqualifying?

    I don't read free republic.com but I think it can be argued that Gov. Mayonnaise cost Romney the election.
    He cost America a lot more.

    Teabaggers are done, so maybe Christie would be a leader who could bridge both parties, because Clinton could not really do that and the last thing we need is another 4-8 years of divided government doing nothing.

    To answer both guys above. Yes I think Romney could have won and our country would be working again if he had won.

    No, Alzheimer's isn't a crime but I think it might be slight impediment to presidential level decision making.

    Obesity isn't a crime either but the presidency requires a lot of travel, long hours and physical endurance.

    Was Romney leading or close enough to have turned things around? One or the other is my bet.

    Christie betrayed Romney before Sandy. Did you hear Christie' s convention speech? He didn't mention Romney once, not even once. He delivered his 2016 campaign kickoff.

    Because you think Romney was leading at the time?
    I guess you were reading unskewedpolls.com
    Romney never led during the entire race. Not once.

    RCP was well balanced and as you can see during the week of the election Romney was behind by only 0.7 %.

    A helluva lot went wrong including the worst convention ever. Romney got undermined by several other Republicans with their own ambitions. Christie led that pack.

    Agree. I haven't forgotten either.

    Don't get me wrong. I can forgive Christie for having ambition and maybe not liking Romney. And I'm not being a fitness nazi about his weight.
    I have what I consider to be legitimate doubts about an obese person handling the demands of the job. Period.

    If he loses weight my opinion may well change.
