According to Public Policy Polling, new data shows that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is actually more popular with Democrats than he is with fellow Republicans.

Christie has a 48 percent favorability rating with Republicans compared to his 52 percent favorability with Democrats. And actually, Christie fares well with independents too, at 52 percent. So, do you think Christie should pull the ol' switcheroo and change from a Republican to a Democrat?

GAWKER.COM reports:
New polling data suggests New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may have exactly what it takes for a Republican to be elected president: Democrats like him more than Republicans do.

    He should just drop out of politics and find something he may be competent at

    Chris Christie should become bold and become an Independent. Get out of the silly gang warfare of the Democrats and Republicans. Who needs them? Become an individual politically that's the best way to go.

    Yes. The Republican Party needs to purge itself of all non-Conservative traitors such as Christie if it is to survive into the future. Any Republican that supports President "I wanna be King" Obama should have their membership in the GOP terminated immediately as why have two parties if both are going to end up virtually indistinguishable from the other. Though I'd rather he be sent one-way to Gitmo where he and all other traitors to the Constitution (those who support the Marxist-in-Chief Obama) belong.

    If Charlie Crist could become a Democrat...just sayin'...
  • intolerantrwj 2013/01/23 16:11:46
    ..... no need to announce formerly, he's already Out of the Bag to those who didn't have sense enough to see it previously.

    I'll bet Ann Coulter is wishing she had taken a deeper look into what he had to say before she got all googlie-eyed and fawning all over him.

    In this country we are all free to associate ourselves with whomever we choose. If Gov. Christie wants to be a Democrat, so be it. If he wants to be a Republican, so be it also.

    The Democrat Party seems to have a more stringent litmus test for membership than the Republican Party. Republicans have been putting up with the likes of Olympia Snowe, Bush 41 and 43, Nelson Rockefeller, Gerald Ford, and their ilk for decades, so why not Christie?

    NO Independent ! real 3rd party candidate.

    No. Just no. Just flat no.

    Both he and colin powell should be kicked as far out of the republican party as is possible ! ! Perhaps if the landed on mars that might be far enoigh away ! ! Have ALL of you forgotten his nearly COMPLETE endorsement of husin obama just prior to the past election ? Bosmith122@hotmail.com

  • dude 2013/01/22 14:17:44
    Actually the better question is, should the Republican Party just rename itself the old Democrat Party or the Blue Dog Democrats. That is what they have become and Christie embodies that spirit to a T.

    His views are a better fit with the GOP, especially about unions and that kind of thing. It is absolutely absurd for Republicans to turn against him because he saw it in his states best interest to get along with Obama. You can do business with the "other side", without being a traitor to your own. It's even okay if you like people 'across the aisle'. There are too many in Washington, who have not matured beyond high school, where you couldn't be friends with someone as long as you were friends with someone else. People should grow up and try to do what is good for the U.S. They are supposed to be working for us. Too bad it wasn't in their oath, or was it???
  • Pete 2013/01/22 02:25:37
    Chris Christie should get out of political leadership altogether. There is already an oversupply in this country's leadership of whimpering, simpering turncoats like Christie, who stands for nothing substantial politically.

    The Democrats already have too many faux Republicans in their ranks.
  • AnneFS 2013/01/22 01:39:29
    No, stay Republican. He does what's right regardless of party affiliation. He will help the GOP get back into power.
  • marcuspennington88 2013/01/22 01:37:39
    He needs to register as a communist and go on a diet
  • DaveP 2013/01/22 01:36:57
    Christie will do whatever he wants to do. The people should watch him to see how well he represents Republican ideals. But in the end it's HIS decision.
  • BAAH BEN 2013/01/22 01:25:33
    He should become a cow

    He is still a republican... not to be trusted. I like him but wouldn't vote for him
  • syl 2013/01/15 20:53:05
    I think he's confused what he is.

    along with Colin Powell.

    He is Too Good to be a part of the UnAmerican Slave Party!

    I live in NJ. His handeling of "Sandy" is impressive. I still disagree with most everything else he does, and the way he goes about it. Arrogant blowhard
  • Michaelene 2013/01/15 17:43:27
    I like his no nonsense way of leading and speaking. Maybe it's because of my location near Jersey, or the many family and friends in NJ?
    People want to be told the truth and Christie is it shooting straight from the hip.
    His popularity among teachers in NJ is what surprised me most, they're tired of no show jobs, excessive wasteful administrators, and their own unions attempting to influence their vote.
    This shows that some people can look beyond the cover of a book to see that he is doing his job well, to protect and serve the people of NJ. I'd vote for him if I could.
  • theprothinker 2013/01/15 17:13:35
    He's got too much common sense to be a Democrat. That's why they like him -- they're jealous.
  • 00P 2013/01/15 16:54:02
    He certainly is not a Republican!
  • TombstoneJim 2013/01/15 16:44:47
    He should be ashamed of his pandering and sniffling approach to kiss the ring after the storm. New Jersey's citizens are not well served when a principled man kowtows to an outright socialist in order to gain temporary assistance from that socialist - “The last capitalist will sell us the rope we use to hang him in the public square”……seems like you got the rope Christie -----

    That was a grotesque comment... mean, belittling, full of false crap cause you hope the stink will distract people from the truth. You sissies will have to go thru me to kill him. Traitor. You need to get back in your bunker till we tell you to come out.

    goodness and now you've insulted me......what a great debate you contribute to - well, I'm rubber and your glue - to keep in the juvenile tone of your comment. Christie is just like most blustering blowhards – that when the chips are down, come mewling to some else to “make it all better”…..sort of like you…now admit it, slinging derogatory remarks is fun in the anonymous nature of this site....of no consequence or benefit....sort of like you.....

    indeed it was over the top. I am not going to defend a republican. He was great when he shut down fox and fiends and their one tracked ultra focus on Romney. Seemed like he'd gotten a glimpse of how shallow and superficial the Republican party and their supporters have become.
  • polock 2013/01/15 15:42:57
    no, simply allow him to remain a RINO. he may still return to conservative issues.

    If his party won't come to their senses and get a little more opened minded.

    Screw labels.
  • Embalmer 2013/01/15 08:46:43
    It takes guts to speakout against your own party, just look at the beating Colin Powell is taking by con's today. Christie spoke-out against Congressional Republicans (as did Peter King), when they voted no on relief funds for Hurricane Sandy victims.

    Republicans don't know a good thing when they see it. Any Republican who can draw voters from the left is a valuable commodity to their party in the political climate we have today.

    Stupid Republicans.
