Chris Christie dismisses poll truthers: The polls aren’t rigged against Romney

Source: Raw Story

Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie insists that the many presidential polls showing President Barack Obama with an edge over GOP hopeful Mitt Romney aren’t rigged, no matter what so-called “poll truthers” like Karl Rove and Dick Morris say.

“I don’t buy that,” Christie told ABC host George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. “You look at every poll, you look at its methodology, you can say whether it’s a good or bad poll.”

“But do I think there’s a concerted effort to skew the polls against Gov. Romney? No, I don’t buy that,” he said.

During a segment last week on Fox News, Morris had claimed that Romney was “in a very strong position” even though polls showed him down in all nine battleground states.

Is Christie going rogue? First, he raises debate expectations for Romney for so high that people will expect Romney to shoot eloquence out of his ass. Second, Christie undercuts Romney's talking point that President Obama's positive poll numbers are rigged as part of some massive conspiracy.

1. You may have noticed that Christie is dumb like a fox...

and nobody really knows just what his real agenda is. We do, however, know that Rove and Morris are tools just wanting to get through the next election.

So, the real question is-- why is Christie sabotaging Romney?

8. The real question is how many nanoseconds will it be after Mitt concedes

until Christie starts passing out "Chris 2016!!" bumper stickers.

12. I'm not sure you'd call it sabotage

Christie is speaking the plain truth: the Romney campaign is run horrifically, and their candidate is terrible.

13. Yeah, but now I've heard him saying nice things about Romney over the weekend...

so I suspect someone's been talking to him about just who's the candidate he's supposed to be working for.

2. Speaking of stuff out of an ass...

It's just Christie gas.

And it stinks as usual.

3. As sad as it may be, he's probably one of the most intelligent Republicans

That says more about the state of the party than it says about him of course, but for him to admit the polls are not rigged and to publicly denounce the bumbling idiot from Missouri, that instantly puts him above around 95% of the party.

4. Is Romney rigged against the polls?

A little firmware upgrade here, tweaking a voltage regulator there...

5. They haven't let him in on the electronic voting solution.

He's too much of a wild card. Now, he doesn't even know he's the fat kid cut of the circle...he's just talkin' like he always does...because no one bothered to tell him to shut up. They thought it was safer just not talking to him.

10. Christie governs a state that will vote +15pts for Obama

He knows if he toes the polls are rigged line it wil hurt him down the road. And I love that he put Romney's debate expectations through the roof. It sets his bar that much higher.

11. Dick Morris

Is the biggest idiot ever, this guy is going on TV claiming that Mitt will win Michigan, Ohio, Flordia, Iowa, and just about every other state. Christie never liked Romney to begin with just look at his convention speech when he spent most of the time talking about himself rather then Romney. Romney can't get Christie on his side even if he bribed him with 10 buckets of buffalo wings

16. I don't think Christie is "going rogue." He is setting up for a White House run in 2016.

Romney is too soft and full of waffles to beat Obama. Romney's campaign is the worst one since Dukakis, probably worse than Dukakis. That doesn't mean Obama is going to get a Reagan-esque landslide, but the poor quality of Romney's campaign is one of the worst in recent history.

Christie knows Romney is cooked. He knew Romney was cooked at the RNC and his speech showed it. He was auditioning for 2016 not supporting the party's nominee. I think Christie is still auditioning now.
