“i already know i could win.” win what? a raffle?

Remember Chris Christie said this about the 2012 Presidential election the other day: “I have people calling me and saying to me, ‘Let me explain to you how you could win.’ And I’m like, ‘You’re barking up the wrong tree. I already know I could win.’ That’s not the issue.”

Well, there’s great news for Chris in a new Bloomberg News poll. Ha, kidding.

His favorability rating is, um, 21% – compared to the President’s 55% (or as Fox might report it, ‘CHRISTIE TIES WITH OBAMA IN NEW POLL!”)

Worse, 62% of respondents appear never to have heard of him. (Or they have no opinion on him at all, which is kind of embarrassing).

(See today’s NYT ‘fact-check’ on Christie here – ‘Christie’s Talk Is Blunt, but Not Always Straight’)

As for the Alaskan thing…..

TPM: If Sarah Palin ultimately decides to enter the 2012 presidential race, she’ll have a long, long way to go to reach the White House: A new Bloomberg News poll of American adults finds Palin is now more unpopular than ever.

…. 60% of respondents said they viewed Palin unfavorably, compared to 28% who viewed her favorably – good for a whopping 32-point net negative favorability.

    His ego and his gut are in competition, and, at this point, it’s difficult to tell which one’s winning.

    LOL Hachiko!!! It’s so funny how the media is working overtime to turn this dishonest tub of lard into a superstar. Every time Politico writes a story about him they mention that “he’s slimmer.” Where? And there’s this story being pumped about some stupid woman at one of his town halls who said something like being smart and bold (Christie) was hot and sexy. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

    They are so desperate to find someone with the brains, charisma, good looks and integrity of President Obama that they resort to manufacturing these ridiculous memes. Those who know of this idiot know better. And the other 62% don’t care. Can you say one-term governor?

      I saw that clip on Hardball and nearly died laughing. Maybe if his wife could get within a couple inches of him, she’d find him hot and sexy. Oy.

      Desperate for the next great “white hope” as the repuiblican congresswoman was caught on camera spouting to a group gathering just after President Obama was elected!

    You guys are hilarious!!! I know this is gonna sound…..ugh. But I really do like his confidence and his smart mouth. I don’t like his policies and I dislike that he is a repug. Do I think he could beat Obama in 2012 if he ran? Heck NO!! He couldn’t even win his own state if he ran against the Prez. But he’s a cutie( ie: I mean his brash self confidence and his tough attitude) and it’s been interesting watching him. Chris on Hardball tonight said there was an article on Christie that said that the gov of NJ is all hot air and little follow through: He says more than he does in NJ, an image that is in direct contrast with his emerging national brand. Bottom line: he should stay in NJ till they boot him out or else Obama will crush him into dust.

      With due respect, as a current resident of the Garden State, he has no chance nationally and there is nothing appealing about his bombastic behavior.

      With all due respect Lisa, your very simplistic and glib view of hateful, inciting and dangerous behavior and rhetoric as “cute” and “confident” is very harmful.

      This is how we got 8 years of George Bush and sarah palin as a “respected national voice”.
      It is the dismissal of dangerous hateful rhetoric and attitudes disguised as bravado and wrapped in “harmless” chatter that has this country on the verge.

      I think we respond differently to certain personality traits….I don’t admire “exaggerated aplomb” in anyone. Supreme self confidence is not an attribute IMO, if it is feed by narcissistic, self serving or ignorant tendencies. I just described Silly Sarah…LOL!

      It is my understanding that he sometimes crosses the line into bullying type behavior. I recall a recorded incident at a rally for Meg Whitman in California, during the lead up to the November elections. His behavior was intimidating and inappropriate IMO.

        That “incident” was staged and so phony and quite flop Sue! Part of the start of project prop up Christie and in keeping with helping raise his “national profile”!

        It was hilarious and ridiculous: the “heckler” a classic tea party Whitman operative was seated front and center at a highly-screened and hand-picked audience at a Meg Whitman “rally”.

        Christie was so scripted and looked so silly! Lol!

    Christie and his Repub. Gov. brethren are wreaking havoc all over the midwest, but there will be sweet revenge come November 2012.
