Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) would not be able to deliver the Garden State if he were chosen as Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick, a new survey shows.
Without running mates, Romney gets 39 percent to the president’s 49 percent in New Jersey, according to a Wednesday Quinnipiac University poll.
With Christie on the ticket, Romney bumps up to 42 percent, compared with the president’s 50 percent.
“Color New Jersey blue. President Barack Obama beats Gov. Mitt Romney and Christie’s presence on the Republican ticket doesn’t help Romney,” says Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Fail. Absolute fail. Christie can't even deliver his own state if he were Romney's veep, it looks like Romney would still lose by double digits.
I never expected Christie to be Romney's selection (my money's still on Ohio GOP Sen. Rob Portman, the Most Boring Man On Earth) but this has to seal it.
