does Chris Christie have a shot at winning New jersey next year?

If so what parts of the state does he need to win?
I thought NJ was a democratic state.

Christie's pretty popular here, and he probably should win reelection. I don't think I've seen any major NJ democrats want to run against him. They all seem to be getting ready for the likely open senate seat in 2014.

I don't live in New Jersey, but I'm a big fan of Cory Booker running against Chris Christie.

The big dog Chris Christie will get ~56% of the vote.

Depends on who's president.

Christie ain't safe.  His hostile attitude toward everyone he disagrees with isn't going to help him, certainly.

Of course it will. Those unions compromise some 10-15% of the population. The Abbotts are 18-20%. Everyone else approves of the big dog because he is the savior.

Christie will probably win reelection, because he's reasonably popular for some incomprehensible reason and such parts of Democratic bench in New Jersey as might be induced to run against him suck.

I wasn't aware that you had to be part of a union to sympathize with them.  Regardless, politicians who act that arrogant and condescending don't usually live great legacies.

Christie is favored for re-election, but that's about as much as you can say. Former Gov. Richard Codey could make things interesting, and there's a chance he could run. Booker will not run, of course.

The key areas of the state are the same as last time. Christie needs big margins at the shore and in the Northwest. He'll also need to hold steady in Democrat-leaning Bergen County (tie or better) and heavily-Democratic Middlesex County (tie or better).

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

The Rutgers-Eagleton poll is probably the worst Uni polling outfit in the country. Monmouth and FDU are much better.

I'd put him at between a 3:2 and 2:1 favorite to win.  the problem is that he is just popular enough to keep the most dangerous candidate (Booker) on the sidelines.


he also is conceivably just unpopular enough to bail a la Romney 2006.

Can someone tell me what the hype over Booker is? I admit I don't know much about him, but it seems like he gets a lot of attention from Democrats on here.

The way I see it, he's like a New Jersey Obama, but better. There's also the fact that he's done a ton of good as mayor, and the perception that he amplify his good deeds as Governor. He's also got a good sense of humor.

Booker will wait until 2017 or gun for Lautenberg's open Senate seat.

Christie will win by a moderate margin.

Booker won't roll the dice and chance being dealt a devastating defeat. And no one else can beat Christie barring a major screw-up for him.
