Can Chris Christie save the Republicans and win the White House in 2016? As the frank-talking, popular New Jersey governor cruises towards a landslide re-election Tuesday, his star is rising.
The 51-year-old father of four, whose larger than life personality has managed to endear him to voters across the board, is expected to defeat his Democrat opponent, Barbara Buono, by around two to one.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll, 94 percent of Republicans, 64 percent of independents and even 30 percent of Democrats in New Jersey support him for a second term as governor.
