I guess the darling of the RINO establishment really isn’t the guy who can beat Hillary. He can’t even beat her in his own state!
In a new Quinnipiac University poll, Clinton beats Christie 50-42, which shows that Christie can’t even be sure of winning his own state. That points out that Christie has probably sacrificed the support of conservatives and only gained lukewarm support from leftists in return. Some may say that a Republican from a deep blue state like Joisey has to move to the left to gain support, but even allowing the truth of that, that’s why northeastern “moderate” Republicans like Christie or Romney do terribly in nationwide elections. The problem is, northeastern “moderate” Republicans are pretty much all the Establishment wants to run.
The poll’s sample is 34 Dem, 24 Rep, but given that NJ went for Obama 58-40 in 2012, I don’t think that’s too far out of line.
