Christie narrowly leads in new 2016 GOP poll

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is in a statistical dead heat for the GOP presidential nomination with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), according to a new poll.

A Fox News poll released Wednesday night found Christie pulling in 15 percent in a potential GOP primary. Bush and Paul each bring in 14 percent.

Christie’s position is largely unchanged since the last time Fox polled the question in late December when the New Jersey governor garnered 16 percent.

Since then, he has faced questions about his involvement in the closures of toll lanes on the George Washington Bridge last year, which were closed down in an apparent act of political retribution against a local mayor who did not endorse Christie’s reeelction bid.

Christie fired his deputy chief of staff after emails were released suggesting her involvement, but he has maintained he had no prior knowledge of the closure. An internal probe launched by lawyers hired by Christie found no evidence that he was involved.

    No possible way, he’s a Democrat claiming to be Republican.

    Dr.Ben Carson is the only one that blacks will vote for and therefore the only one that will beat Clinton. with Christie, Clinton might as well be president. I will not vote for him even in the primaries. As I said, Clinton might as well be president. Same for bush. I will not vote for him either. I would vote for cruz, but he wouldn’t get elected.

    The RINO Chris Christie was
    exonerated of Bridgegate by the lawyers he hired at taxpayer’s expense of over
    a million dollars. People are to believe this report is not biased. Now,
    Christie apparently believes this report puts him back on the path to the
    presidency. Whether people believe the report or not, there are many other
    reasons Christie should not be a nominee for president.

    Chris Christie stated, “Sharia Law won’t come into New
    Jersey and to suggest otherwise is

    nothing more than internet blog B.S.” The RINO Chris Christie is a bully and a
    LIAR. In August 2010, there was a judge in New Jersey that used Sharia law in
    his decision. It was overturned, but he did it. The following is an excerpt
    from the Fox News article:

    “A New Jersey family court judge’s decision not to grant a restraining
    order to a woman who was sexually abused by her Moroccan husband and forced
    repeatedly to have sex with him is sounding the alarm for advocates of laws
    designed to ban Shariah in America.

    Judge Joseph Charles, in denying the restraining order to the woman after her
    divorce, ruled that her ex-husband felt he had behaved according to his Muslim
    beliefs — and that he did not have “criminal desire to or intent to
    sexually assault” his wife.”

    Just another reason why Christie cannot and should not be a
    nominee for president.

    These RINO’s shove a Crispy Cream or yet another bush or what ever RINO, I vote Independent.

  • tcdesalvo says:

    No one I know wants Bush or Christie. Looks like the fix is in again.

  • DonSipe says:

    I cannot believe that Christie and Bush are the front runners. RINOs. The RNC is determined to lose the next election.

  • BH says:

    This poll must have been taken at the RNC headquarters with only establishment GOP in attendance. Either that or the poll was misidentified and was for the Democrat Party.

  • James says:

    This is BS. Christie hasn’t got a snowball’s chance in hell
    of winning a fair primary let alone a general election. We would vote for a rabid squirrel screwing a
    football before we would vote for Christy.

  • caskinner says:

    Christie and Jeb Bush are democrats that have not officially come out of the closet. Tea Party is the answer…..

  • ladyceo says:

      In a tiny corner of Nevada, trying to secede from the Union so as to beat substantial debts and ignore the law.
