Christie leads Clinton in Iowa

December 2, 2013

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) leads former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Iowa, according to a new survey from the GOP firm Harper Polling.

Christie leads Clinton in the key swing state by 43 to 38 percent, according to the poll.

It suggests the New Jersey governor would be the strongest Republican against Clinton in Iowa. Clinton leads a number of other Republicans tested in the survey, including Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) and Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Rand Paul (Ky.).
Christie and Cruz are tied when Iowans are asked who they’d support. Both get 18 percent, with Paul following at 12 percent and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) holding 10 percent. Ryan has 8 percent support, and Rubio is tied with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) at 6 percent.

Some GOP strategists believe Christie might struggle in Iowa’s caucuses because he’s viewed as more of a centrist and caucus-goers in the state tend to be very conservative, especially on social issues. But the poll shows he might have a real chance at winning there, both in the primary and general election.


    Why are we discussing this? Christie is no better than any other democrat. And Clinton should be in jail already for treason and dereliction of duty…Off with her ugly head….

  • Robert Dorn

    They can run Christie all they want. I will not vote for him.

  • Ed Kitting

    I the GOP runs Christie or the other rino’s There is always The Libertarian Party or The Constitution Party,both are superior in ideology to the Dems And GOP. Enough is enough people don’t have to vote for the lesser of two evils,there are options.

    • Ed Kitting

      (If the GOP runs Christie),sorry about the type-o

  • Susan

    Why do they downplay the fact that Cruz TIED Christie? Hello! Everyone loves him and those who don’t fear him. He’s the only person doing what the American people are asking him to, the same people who elected him and the same people who pay him.

    • MARYANN33

      I would vote for Cruz…Pray they don’t push Jeb on us.

  • paulyz

    Let’s just focus on taking the Senate & more large gains in the House in 2014!

  • Jimmy the Greek

    better a dumb democrat than a Rino !

    • Ed Kitting

      What’s the difference??

      • Jimmy the Greek

        nothing !

    • MARYANN33

      Oust Obama and we will have a dumb democrat pres…..

  • Diane H

    Wake up people: the elites are busy working on deciding who we can vote for president. Christie is the elite’s RINO candidate.

  • junkmailbin

    now we know tHAT THEIR ARE DUMB FLOKS IN THE FLY OVER ZONE. Cruz is not a natural born citizen , therefore not eligible, and Christie is a liberal democrat layered in fat saying I AM A REPUBLICAN

    • Ed Kitting

      Cruz has dual citizenship,my understanding is that his parents are American so he apparently is eligible.

  • VirgoVince

    The best LOSERS money can buy!! Thanks, Iowa!!
    You also gave us ovomit!!

  • jetforshort

    I keep shaking my head! The candidate should already be serving at the federal level! Any of those – Cruz, Rubio or Paul are much more able to handle the “Political Beltway” Where did Christie come from????? Don’t tell me NJ. Please. What is fundamentally wrong with us??? Come on, we have to get our stuff together, before there’s either a revolution or a mass exodus! Please let’s choose someone we can reasonably be assured will get rid of the Clintons!

    • Ed Kitting

      I think Rubio took a hit with his amnesty support,don’t see him getting much support from the conservative base. He said as a candidate he wouldn’t support amnesty,then once elected he turned into John McCain.

    • MARYANN33

      I cannot vote for Christie or Clinton…same same…..

  • joanne

    i would just as soon lose!!!

    • Ed Kitting

      If we vote for Christie,we will lose.

  • jb80538

    Although Christie is not much of a Republican, I’d still vote for him over Hitlary!

    • SAnnSM

      Your best bet would be to vote for Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse or hey there is always Goofy or Minnie Mouse who could possibly beat HillBill!

      • jb80538

        while I agree with that, we have to do everything we can to make sure Hitlary DOES NOT become the next POTUS!

        • kevin

          but we should not settle with a RINO

      • david smejkal


    • helen dancer

      Me too!!!

  • kevin

    if they run the RINO Christie they will loose again he is not a republican

    • modernminuteman

      Absolutely right Kevin!:) This so called conservative is pro sharia law, anti 2nd amendment and once more the GOP is trying to tell us who is the conservative candidate. Look how well that worked with Romney and McCain.

      • kevin

        that’s right the old repubs have to go the party must return t its roots of conservatism or die.

        • Jimmy the Greek

          I don’t really care much for AIPAC supporting conservatives much , what America needs is the far Right wing to run things , Pat Buchanan would make a fine leader .

          • Ed Kitting

            Pat is a man,you are exactly right.

        • MARYANN33

          Get rid of Karl Rove now.
