Why On Earth Is Chris Christie Still Pretending To Run For President?

...But the truth is Christie stands out in every poll over Republican proto-candidates in almost any state where there’s polling as someone GOP voters have considered and rejected. His favorable/unfavorable ratio in the most recent national poll of Republicans was at 31/52 (PPP, May 13). In an April poll for NBC asking if Republicans could envision themselves ever supporting various candidates, fully 50 percent said “no” to any support for Christie, far more than for any other name. In the latest Iowa survey (from Quinnipiac) he’s running eighth at 3 percent, despite very high name ID, and has a favorable/unfavorable ratio of 32/56.

Even in New Hampshire, a more naturally congenial state for Christie and one where he’s spent a lot of time, he’s not doing well. A May 6 WMUR/UNH survey showed him running tenth in the Granite State—behind Carly Fiorina—with 3 percent of the vote. And his favorable/unfavorable ratio, while better than it is nationally, was still underwater at 39/40.

Christie’s plunged so far in the Invisible Primary that pollsters have stopped testing him against Hillary Clinton, though an April poll for NBC had him losing to her by 19 points—not too great for a candidacy based heavily on electability.

I want him to be disgraced and humiliated, with people shouting "Idiot!" and "Shut up and sit down!" at him everywhere he goes.

1. My guess is that he'll stop when the donations stop coming in...because he's probably not a hot

 

property on the job market...Post Primary. He's tainted and feels privileged, and probably some other blowhard will hire him as PR or something. LOL

7. Same reason all those other idiots in the GOP clown card are pretending to run

So they have a chance to score big speaking fees and a huge book deal soon after they drop out after Super Tuesday.

Really - does anyone think someone like Ben Carson or Bobby Jindal or Carly Fiorina actually stands a chance of winning the Presidency?

Yeah right.
