Chris Christie is riding a popularity wave

Or at least that's what 'The Fix' would have you believe:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) filed for reelection on Monday. But at this point, it might be easy to look past 2013 and focus a little more intently on 2016. 
Christie has seen a massive boost in his popularity in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, with 77 percent of New Jerseyans saying they approve of the governor in a new Fairleigh Dickinson University poll released Monday. That’s up from 56 percent before Sandy. (Respondents from the first poll were re-contacted for the second one.) 
Christie even gets positive marks from 67 percent of Democrats. Just 17 percent of all registered voters in the Garden State say they disapprove of his performance. 
The poll echoes a new Quinnipiac poll that pegs Christie’s approval at 72 percent and a Rutgers-Eagleton poll that shows his favorable rating at 67 percent.

Well, I'm not surprised he's popular with Democrats.

However before anyone wants to crown Christie the 2016 front runner, I think they'll need a little more data than New Jersey Polls. And as we know New Jersey isn't exactly Red State America.

I don't believe the base (including myself) will ever get past his embrace and several photo ops with then CANDIDATE for second term Obama. Maybe I'm wrong.....but I don't think so.

What do you say?

Bosman, I agree completely. Christie has burned all bridges with the GOP base. He may be fine for New Jersey's general public elections, but he will never be viable as a national GOP figure after what he did to us with not only the Obama storm photo-ops, but with his abandonment of our candidate. In spite of his repeated insistence that he was not interested in running for, or being invited on the presidential ticket, he went weird on Romney once Paul Ryan was chosen. His behavior at the RNC was deplorable, and oviously self-centered. I personally will never believe or trust the guy again, since he has proven himself treacherous enough to put his own New Jersey political stock above the need to rescue American freedom, and American exceptionalism. Our beloved country sits on the pinnacle of destruction at the hands of not only Obama, but at the conspiratorial schemes of his leftist handlers. And Christie knows this as well as anyone, but apparently has no national patriotism. With Chris Christie, it's all about him. His only national political prospects from now on would be to run as an independent, and a spoiler of any chance the rest of us might have to defeat the Democrats. Sorry for the long rant, but my anger at Gov Christie has only intensified with the passing weeks since the election. And it's not just anger; I see no logical argument favoring any conservative political role for this guy.

I agree with both Paul and Nina. I totally noticed a change in Christie as soon as he wasn't selected for the VP slot. He doesn't give a rat's butt about this great country. He is only worried about where his next appearance will be. I think this sentiment is more wide spread than what we think. Christie is toast. He is just like Obama - a narcissist.

Christie ought to run as a Democrat.

I agree with all of the above and that Christie should run as a Democrat. Christie is an egomaniac and like Obama suffers from the God complex.

Christie has no future unless he makes some major changes. He is no longer a viable candidate for our party.
