Much like many of its citizens, New Jersey is small but densely-packed. So, one might imagine why conservatives might be tempted to slaver a little bit at the prospect of chipping off the normally-blue state's 14 electoral votes and taking them for their own.
And with an exceedingly popular Republican governor – who would just look oh so great presiding over the Senate as VP — the situations seems never more likely!
Unfortunately, everyone's gonna have to — and I'll put this in my childhood state's local parlance — Fuggedaboutit!
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.
This — plus all the times that Christie has said he doesn't want to be vice president — is starting to make me think that maybe Chris Christie won't end up on the ticket after all.
Hmmmm… If only there were another popular up-and-coming Republican from a more-easily won state with even more electoral votes are there? If only such a person existed.
