Christie far behind with Trump and Carson ahead in GOP race

Source: NJ.com

Trump, with 33 percent, and Carson, with 20, were the only GOP hopefuls to reach double figures in an ABC News/Washington Post survey of registered Republicans and GOP-leaning independents. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who began the year as the Republican front-runner, was in third place with just 8 percent.

Gov. Chris Christie received 1 percent, tied with former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who dropped out last week; Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

Deadpool on Christie vs. Jindal vs. Santorum anyone?

5. He's currently under their radar.

 

I believe that if given the exposure, his utter wackiness will be apparent.

18. A good question.

 

Wacky is good for (most) Republican primaries. At least it seems so. It should not persist for general elections though. Least, I hope not.

13. A Carson supporter is someone who wants to say "none of the above" but that's not an option. A Trump

supporter is someone who wants to say "I hate ALL them fuckers - why ain't our candidates as smart them folks on the radio?"

Ever listen to a bunch of Republicans panting with lust in their hearts about Hannity or Limbaugh or Beck, etc.? It's creepy. Ever wonder what would happen if one of those blowhards ran for president? Well, now you don't have to wonder anymore.

25. Trump's campaign is perfectly tailored to the driven-by-talk-radio-fabricated-fear voter. For over 2

decades, hate radio has created fact-free paranoia to drive no-information voters to the polls. These are the people who think

* Saddam Hussein attacked the US on 9/11 and was hiding weapons of mass destruction,
* tax cuts for the wealthy trickle down to benefit the poor,
* Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya,
* the scientific community is sharply divided on the "theories" of evolution and climate change,
* the Estate Tax was killing off family farms, and
* voter fraud is a huge problem that must be addressed.


Ask yourself 3 questions:

How stupid would you have to be to believe such nonsense?
How stupid would you have to be to support Trump?
If your answer to both of the previous questions is "pretty fucking stupid," do you think that's a coincidence?

They haven't figured out who their "establishment candidate" is, a la Romney.

12. I think it's Jeb! Cruz is too Tea Party for the country club and Kasich is not Tea Party enough for

the lunatic fringe.

Paul and Huckabee (and probably Walker) have fatally stalled, while Christie and Jindal and Santorum and Gilmore and Graham failed to launch.

Rubio and Fiorina are running for VP.

That leaves the Trump and Carson as the top 2 non-establishment candidates (and top two candidates based on current polling) with Bush and either Walker or Rubio (if he can catch fire soon) as the top 2 (or 3) establishment candidates who are doing a shockingly poor job.

Between the establishment candidates, Bush is sucking the least (which says more about Walker's and Rubio's failure than it implies any success whatsoever by Bush).

Trump and Carson can dominate a 17 candidate field when the vast majority of poll participants aren't paying close attention to the race. Yet after Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, the field will be down to 3-to-5 candidates and the voters will be paying closer attention. Trump and Carson will lose momentum at this phase (if they haven't lost it before then -- a fate I anticipate for Carson more than Trump), and the establishment will rally around a candidate (probably Jeb!, but maybe Rubio or Walker).

I think we're about 75% likely to see a Bush-Kasich ticket and about 15% likely to see a ticket with Rubio on the top or bottom. A month ago, I'd have put Walker's prospects higher than Rubio's, but this has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month for Walker and I don't think he can recover from this setback.

7. Trump

Trump is like a high school election, the ones where they just
mouth everyone else off the stage and steal the election by
promising free donuts every Friday

10. You DO get it, Fred

Elections can be swayed at the last minute by appealing to the
marginal voters, those least informed. That's why the Founding
Fathers sought responsible, propertied voters, and a Senate chosen
by legislature - they feared 'mob rule' I think is the term in Federalist Papers.

Congrats on the win rate .... most of those people are pre-diabetes now because
of your electioneering.

Outside of New Jersey. He's never had a shot at getting their nomination, his anti-gun past alone has always been enough to sink him.

22. Hello folks ,The Donald here !

Yes, attorney in Texas ,actually I thought big dog would be the one to report on Chris Christie's 1 % down 1 % from his last polling of 2 % !

You see attorney in Texas it says here from 3 weeks or more ago, Christie's poll number is somewhere between 1 % and 1.2 %. Now of course I know you can't see what it says here back there in the pages, and that is why I am here to tell a little about what it really says , because what it actually is, is what it says here ! But you don't see what it is according to what it says here until it all catches up to what it says here . And of course that means what it says here is actually what it all comes down to. Everything else catches up to what it all comes down to.

But of course the projections go further back than three weeks or so,however three weeks back it became clear the projections are right on track. When Christie launched his campaign in formal announcement he said, I don't know where this thing is going or how it will end up. Well ,he was absolutely right about what he knows not !

I say better he doesn't know because the less he knows the greater the entertainment value !

And of course my opponents have no clue about what it says here, And never would any of those clowns think to look in here in order to get clued in !!! I mean nobody here gives a dam about those clowns and that means those clowns find no value here at all !

Stay tuned folks ,great entertainment ahead ,really really great entertainment !



Buy the way folks, there is plenty more to what it says here , and it's all about great entertainment !

Yes the ABC poll results came out yesterday ,here is the Washington Post
http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/poll-trump-carson-top-gop-race-clinton-leads-dems-but-support-drops/2015/09/13/7961a820-58c2-11e5-8bb1-b488d231bba2_story.html

I sent Christie a case of Slim Fast about three weeks ago , I put a note in there ,I told him he needs to take notice of the product line ,take it to heart , be it !

Can't really expect what he is to take on some good advice !!!
Guy's like that, you can't tell them anything because they think they already know !

Now is a good a time as any to say it, FAT CHANCE Christie ha ha !

Stay tuned folks !
