    42-24 favorability with Obama voters, 36-31 favorability with Romney voters.

    +6 with Independents, +9 with Republicans, and +20 with Democrats.

      It would be virtually impossible for him to win a GOP primary with numbers like that. IIRC all the major 2012 GOP candidates except for maybe Ron Paul had overwhelmingly positive numbers among GOP voters.

      It's possible that by 2016 the GOP will move far enough to the center to make Christie viable, but in my view the only way that could happen would be if they lost the House in 2014 and perceived that they lost it because they were too far to the right. The odds of a Dem takeover in 2014 look remote, and even if the GOP lost the House most of them would probably conclude that it was because they compromised with Obama too much and didn't stand up for conservative principles.
