  •  Clearly more conservative... (6+ / 0-)

    ...during his actual Governorship, not just later as convenient.

    His overall persona also is sincere.

    Sincerity in politics and person right away make him stronger.

    And that he's clearly more conservative a Governor than Mitt was makes him ideologically stronger.  That Christie himself is from a blue state undercuts the notion that you have to be as liberal as Mitt pretended to be.

    I don't agree with LordMike above on financial strength, I think that's wait-and-see.  Mitt could self-fund if needed, and when he didn't need it, he could raise plenty enough from others.

    But my points above on other things establish my argument.

    •  Okay that makes sense (2+ / 0-)

      I was thinking more about the national polls. The most recent I can find is from PPP with Christie at 15% which is basically a five-way tie with Rand, Cruz, Jeb and someone else. Romney was consistently over 20% at a comparable point.

      •  All polling now is a throwaway (0+ / 0-)

        The polling is worthless, whether national or in states.

        I look at fundamental strengths and weaknesses.  Polling won't matter until the last month before Iowa.

        •  It isn't worthless (0+ / 0-)

          It just isn't predictive of anything.
