Christie Is Candidate GOP Voters
Want Least As Their 2016 Nominee

Rassussen Reports, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 8/8/2013 6:48:18 AM

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Here we go again! How about a Conservative this time, rather than a RINO?

Christie, Rubio, McCain, Graham, I could go on, are why I tell the RNC that I am not interested in donating to them. The callers for the party often agree with me.

Could we please have someone who upholds the Constitution ? Could we please have someone who can add and subtract on a balance sheet ? Could we please have someone who wants to reduce the tax burden on small business ? Could we please have someone who has a sense of humor so they can laugh at the press when the ask such ´have you stopped beating your wife´ questions (Regan made the press look stupid with well aimed humor) and can we please have someone who is proud of this country and doesn´t hate people based on their level of success or color of their skin. All of that is missing in the current occupant of the White House.

Number 5, the answer is not if they attended our public schools. I do not know what they teach in private schools, but love of country, reading, writing and arithmetic and the Constitution are not seriously taught in our public schools. And the propaganda is non-stop.

Glad even at this early stage that conservatives are showing dislike for Christiobama. Can´t imagine another Bush. And, Rubio is not going to have a chance after he was rolled by Schumer and McCain. Paul will prob keep his Dad´s numbers and limited appeal. Dont know enough about Gov Walker on the big stage but get his newsletters. Interested in Cruz. I am not going to support a Bush/Christie ticket. My lack of support for Bush is not due to immigration. I actually favor a limited immigration bill. Cut to the bone without Los Vegas or any pork and no blanket amnesty but plenty of border control. We must secure the borders against...not workers..but against terrorists.

ITA #8.

Scott Walker out of Wisconsin seems like a decent guy. He fought the unions and won. He did not back down.

Cruz is great. I love how forthright he his and how he´s not afraid. I think that media would crucify Cruz. Cruz and ANY conservatives will have to run 2 campaigns one for election and one against the media.

I held my nose and voted for McCain and Romney but no longer. If the GOP nominates Bush, Christie or Rubio I will vote for a third party candidate for the first time. The GOP elite and Rinos want nothing to do with the Tea Party. They want to just rule like the Democrats and to hell with the Constitution. Another loss is in the works get ready for that fool hillary to be the next President. She will cement all the communist, far left, progressive illegal policies, directives of obama.

#4 Dittos! The GOP does not want a conservative, with a steely spine, as their nominee, as evidenced by how badly they treat conservatives. Which is one reason why I left the GOP a long time ago. The only reason I remain a registered "R" is to vote in the primaries, although a lot of good that does anymore.

To #5´s excellent summation might I add Q-U-I-E-T. Get out of our faces and off TV. I would really like an executive - governor, business leader - not a legislator, especially a senator. Someone like Calvin Coolidge.

Cruz - love him, Rubio - past his sell by date, and Jindal are not eligible. Both parents were not citizens at birth. In fact, only Cruz had at least one who was an American citizen at birth...but he was born in Canada.

Hmm ~ Christie ~ he reminds me a lot of Romney. When the guy got his big break and ran against nobody else in the Virginia primary, he got about 10% of the vote.

The problem the GOP-e has is they imagine they run the party ~ but they don´t ~ they´re just another faction, and a small one at that.

As Jefferson proved, you must not only have good candidates, you must have a political party that gets it´s own fanbase out to vote for those candidates. That means you must have candidates that appeal to the fanbase.

The GOP-e has no one who appeals to the fanbase.

Let´s see...in 2012 the RNC chose Romney and millions of conservatives stayed home...result was Obama victory and the lies that will lead Repubicans in Congress to usher in amnesty for illegals.

In 2016, we are already seeing the likes of Christie, Bush, and Rubio pushed out there as the next RINO candidates. Insanity--doing the same thing over and over despite failure.

This time I will join in with the stay-at-homers if there is not a 100% true blue American leading the ticket. In fact I will find a third party candidate (Rand Paul?) to support.

I´m with #15. It´s way too early to be taking 2016 polls and for prospective voters to be deciding to stay home. I´ll find a candidate I like, I´ll work for that person and hope he/she gets the nomination, but whomever gets the GOP nod, there is no way I would stay home and sacrifice my precious vote. I can hold my nose and pull the lever and be thankful that I still have the right to cast my ballot.

Is Cruz eligible? I´ll leave it to him to answer...

"Sen. Ted Cruz rejected questions Sunday over his eligibility to be president, saying that although he was born in Canada “the facts are clear” that he’s a U.S. citizen. “My mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She’s a U.S. citizen, so I’m a U.S. citizen by birth,” Cruz told ABC."

Both Cruz and OBAMA had fathers that were not born in USA - if Barack was eligible so is Ted.

I had no problem voting for Mitt Romney. He is a good man just like Paul Ryan. They are sensible people and care about the USA. I´m not going to agree with every position they hold but I do respect them.

The people who stay home because a candidate doesn´t agree with them 100% is a vote for the other party. I just have to wonder how family matters are handled when a family member doesn´t agree with them? If I don´t care for an attitude, I call their respective office.

I will vote for Christie if he ends up being our candidate. In the primaries, that would be a different story.

The country is hungry for a principled leader who will advance a traditional agenda...see how I did that? Use the word conservative and the media will tear into him. Bring along those old fashioned democrats that realize this country is going in he wrong direction. They understand traditional America. It is conservative America but the media has made the word conservative equal to racist. Make the clear choice by putting someone out there who can harken back to a time when we were a prosperous, respected country that values freedom. It is going to take a fearless happy warrior to take on the media who will portray any Republican as mean and racist. Please no more RINO´s, that would be the kiss of death. We have to wrest this country away from the ruling class. Re-treads won´t do it. Cruz is very appealing. Gov. Susana Martinez of Mew Mexico would be a great running mate. Whoever the nominee is he/she has to go for the jugular with a smile on his/her face.

I have reached ´don´t care´ moments in my life. I think of the song by Phil Collins,"I don´t care anymore" that I played to my first wife before the divorce, so loud it shook the house. I think of Vietnam while carrying my dead buddies back to fire base in a poncho. I think of companies I worked for before becoming self sufficient. And now I have reached ´don´t care´ with this Republican Party. Chris Christie, what a joke.
Yes a few bright spots, Ted Cruz, Pat Mccrory, and Scott Wallker. Thats about it.

Well you can tell ev´ryone I´m a down disgrace
Drag my name all over the place.
I don´t care anymore.
You can tell ev´rybody ´bout the state I´m in
You won´t catch me crying ´cos I just can´t win.
I don´t care anymore I don´t care anymore


I won´t be there anymore
Get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don´t care anymore I don´t care anymore

´Cos I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face ´cos you held all the cards.
I don´t care anymore.
And I really ain´t bothered what you think of me
´Cos all I want of you is just a let me be.
I don´t care anymore D´you hear? I don´t care no more

I won´t be there no more
So get out of my way.
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don´t care anymore
D´you hear? I don´t care anymore
I don´t care no more.

Ted Cruz would be my hands down choice because of his conservatism. While,he has no real managerial experience that I can see, I think he is so bright, that wouldn´t be a problem. I also like Martinez, Governor of New Mexico. If as we are being told we need to court Hispanics. Martinez sounds pretty conservative when she speaks, but I am not sure what her record in New Mexico is.

But as others have said, 2014 is WAY MORE critical at this point than 2016.

PS. I still don´t believe Conservatives did not vote against Zero Nero. I firmly believe this last election was stolen by the Dems who are masters at fraud, deception, data mining and programming our now "computerized" voting systems.

I´m at the point where I believe the country is lost and the only hope is a constitutional conservative to ´stop´ it. If Christie is the nominee then he or Hillary will be the ones to finish the nation off. It will make no difference. Elections are stolen, we have one party rule and the Republicans look and act like democrats. It´s all about power and theft for certain individuals.
If the pols don´t listen to the people, elections won´t matter it leaves us with one choice, armed insurrection but that won´t happen.

Talk of staying home or voting Third Party gladdens the hearts (if they have one) of the Dem/Lefties.

I used to be registered Independent, switched for a primary many years ago, then never re-registered as R. But now, i, too, am on the verge of changing again.

True, "moderates" have pushed us down the big government path, but compared to the LEFT-WING Dem Party... We will not survive another BO.

Our fight has to be engaged right now, get people informed, call our legislators to complain when they´re wrong, to encourage when they make the right, Constitutional, free market, liberty-centered decisions.

FIRST: there is WAY too much in-fighting, too much airing dirty laundry in public to the thrilling enjoyment of the Dems and media (one and same), too much fractiousness without anyone producing a coherent, intellectually sound enunciation of a Conservative political philosophy.

All of this bombastic circular firing squad mayhem serves to weaken whomever our candidates are. Priebus is nice. But nice will not work against the hard Left: they´re laughing their heads off.

dang it all. this has been said again and again and again... try to keep the faith. pray.

#19 - due to peculiarities in the law, Obama would be a US citizen if born overseas only if his mother was unmarried at the time.

Cruz´ mother was married to a foreign national at the time of his birth overseas. They probably took care of his ´naturalization´ when his father became a citizen as well ~ after living here the requisite number of years as a legal alien.

Today the law is different. Baby born to an American woman overseas is an American citizen at birth ~ whether she´s married or not.

Cruz is not eligible! That´s because his mommy was married to the daddy.

Why would a conservative encourage the GOP establishment to run more RINOs by insisting they will vote for any warm body with an elephant button on his lapel?

You can´t criticize blacks for instinctively voting Dem and in the same breath claim you´ll vote for anyone who runs against (whomever).

At this point, the choice between Dems and RINOs is one of degree. With Dems, the country will become Detroit in 20-30 years; with RINOs, 30-40. The parade of liberalism is inevitable. As libs ruin states (CA for example), they flee across state lines to other, better managed states, but bring their liberal politics with them and ruin new ones (Colorado for example). Slowly and inevitably, so many states will become "blue" states that the rest won´t matter. We´re almost there already. Then the decline will accelerate.

There was a phony poll the other day that just made up data on how the public rated Presidential contenders. Of course Obama´s pretend Republican buddy Chris Christie was rated on top, Hillary (the Benghazi know nothing) was second, Elizabeth Warren (the cigar store Indian), was third and Obama came in last.

I know this was a biased, made up political poll, probably aimed at low information voters because Obama was on the list (and Warren). Perhaps the purpose of the poll was just to list Christie on top of any poll.

#41, there is a wide gulf between actively working for a candidate and simply sitting back hoping the right person lands in the R slot. When a person does the sitting back schtick, others are doing the selecting It´s too easy and a copout to say the "establishment", the "RINOS´, the RNC, the "media", the "Dems" chose our nominee, therefore I will not support that person. It´s lots more fulfilling to help with the selection.

We need a third party...the freedom party. Conservative, small government, constitutionally oriented, fiscally responsible, and opportunity for all that work hard. This is a message that will sell. All the Freedom party has to do is run against Detroitism, or the complete failure of extreme liberalism. There is nothing progressive in urban, social and moral decay as we have witnessed in Detroit.

As for that governor from NJ. He was dead to me the day he embraced Obama to get bucks from the Federal Government to ensure his re-election. What a complete CREEP! He threw the race and ensured we have another 4 years of retrenchment, no growth, huge budget deficits, the disastrous Obamacare, Islamic totalitarian expansion, and continued fundamental change to socialism under zero. All for a few bucks to rebuild some boardwalks. I will NEVER vote for that CREEP!

As a young man I originally registered as a Democrat. A good friend of mine insisted I should become a Republican. (Back in the old south, if you registered as a Republican you never got to vote. Everyone running was Democrat.) Well I became a Republican. When Ronald Reagan came along, this "republican" insisted Bush was the better candidate because "he could win and had national and international experience(sic!)". Another good friend whom I respected said he was moving to Canada if Reagan was elected because he was a war mongerer. Reagan had it rough. But he stuck to his guns and made the argument for conservatism. The rest is history.

I have had it with these guys that want to have their cake and eat it to. Out with Rubio, Christie. McCain and Romney are losers and need to shut up and go away. They had their chance. I like Rand Paul and I really like Cruz, so far. Curiously, he never shows up on any Republican sponsored surveys, like they are trying to freeze him out of the Club.

The numbers the headline alludes to appear to be behind a subscription wall.

Last cycle Palin was the candidate GOP voters wanted least in the Rasmussen polling. Then Gingrich. Palin was around 35%, Gingrich 30%. I´d bet Christie is over 40%.

If Christie wins the nomination, the GOP is finished. It´s just that simple.

Every time I hear Christie´s name, I can picture him walking side-by-side with the evil kenyan and loving it, like they were BFF. I want a candidate who hates obama like I do and would refuse to be seen with him.

We had better get that third party started now if we want to have a chance in 2016. There´s no such thing as starting too early if you want to defeat the enemy.

Rep. King from NY looks like another Dole or McCain, a sure loser!

The Republican party always has a hard time coming up with a LOSER in the presidential elections!

The 10 dwarves system always works for the dem party as the super-delegates pick between two serious candidates.
It never works for the Republicans as they help the MSM tear each other up!

Conservatism is not an economic, religious or social philosophy. Rather it is an attitude toward natural law, a transcendent moral order, tradition, organic unity, personal responsibility; among others. As such, it has absolutely nothing to do w/republicanism; which is nothing but cheap politics engaged in by low lifes. More and more, but not enough, grasp that the GOP´s terminal condition is a direct function of it´s absence of principle. A blowhard like Christie is testament to that reality.

Get Huckabee to sidetrack them all onto his diet that lost him 100 pounds, and they can
have a GOPig reality show called "The Biggest Lyin´ Loser" for liberoids who merely pretend
they are RINO´s.

I was a Goldwater girl in California in the 60´s and lived in Sacramento when Reagan was governor. I liked Reagan and voted for him for president but I have to tell you, you have an idealized version of Reagan that you´re putting forward. He was much more like chris Christie than like Ted Cruz. I like both.

Clear out the Bush and related cronies.
Avoid anyone who listens to Karl Rove.

Let me see who is still left.

Christie remains more conservative or less liberal and big government oriented, and more accomplished as governor than either Jeb or our most recent severely conservative nominee.

Look to the governors---- Jindal, Walker ( although his lack of a college diploma at some point will cause huge problems among people who get their opinions from Jon Stewart and Bill Maher) Perry..... and Newt.

One or two of those people will excel in Iowa and New Hampshire. Time for a populist conservative again.

#16 started off with an important point, but made a wrong turn thereafter. The stay at home crowd got us into this mess, with help from fraud and the media. If everyone who recognized that Obama was dangerous had voted against him, he´d have lost. The time to demand a better candidate is during the primaries. Once the candidates are set, you have to save us from Hillary. Many criticize Romney, but he doesn´t hate this country and he wouldn´t have tried to find ways to destroy it. Hillary is Obama´s ideological soul mate. She has to be stopped.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network.The visit comes days after revelations surfaced that Sharpton worked with the FBI. The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
