If you haven’t heard, former New Jersey Governor RINO Chris Christie has officially thrown his hat in the presidential ring, hoping to be an effective alternative to former President Donald Trump. There’s just one problem: no one seems to want him in the race.
According to poll numbers taken on the very day of Christie’s entrance into the race, he is actually one of the very last names on the list in order of popularity. The only name below his is that of “someone else.” In fact, he’s actually tied with such a person.
The poll, taken by Morning Consult, noted what most polls of late are saying: Trump is the most popular by far, and the only individual even close to him in popularity is Florida Governor and big hitter Ron DeSantis. However, the latter still trails by no small number.
According to the poll, Christie is seven times less popular than former VP Mike Pence and half as well-liked as Liz Cheney. Yes, even Liz Cheney, a woman who’s practically been cast out of the Republican Party, and her state is more popular.
As mentioned, Trump holds the top slot with 56 percent of potential primary voters. Next comes DeSantis, who has amassed 22 percent. However, he was also the second choice for about 47 percent of those surveyed.

Those were the only two names to ever reach double digits. Candidates or potential candidates such as Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, Greg Abbott, Kristi Noem, Tim Scott, and Asa Hutchinson all came in with either slightly higher or tied numbers as Christie, at one percent.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, the poll found that almost four in ten individuals (39 percent) actually noted to dislike Christie. Only 30 percent viewed him even slightly favorably.
Let’s just say these numbers should tell Christie and the rest of the nation all we need to know about how 2024 will go for him. Sure, he might be able to amass a little more popularity in the coming months. But at this point, there’s no way it will be even close enough to dream of winning.
