Chris Christie is the Real Deal

A Quinnipiac Poll shows support for Chris Christie in New Jersey (14 electoral votes) that is simply astounding.

No, your eyes aren't lying to you. Christie is viewed favorably by 63 percent of women, 72 percent of independents and 42 percent of African-Americans. Add in that he's viewed favorably by 63 percent of voters making less than 50k a year, and you've got a winner.

But no, he's not conservative enough.
