New Jersey Election Results: Christie Wins

Chris ChristieBusiness Insider – by BRETT LOGIURATO

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will win re-election, multiple networks are projecting.

The final numbers are expected to be a landslide, as the race was never close between Christie and Democratic candidate Barbara Buono.   

Christie increased his share of the vote with nearly every demographic, according to New York Times exit polls. He won 55% of women (+10 from 2009), 20% of the black vote (+10), and 48% of the Hispanic vote (+11). He won among all age groups except 18-to-29-year-olds, which he lost by only 6 points. He also captured 31% of the Democratic vote.

Christie is expected to use the big win in a solidly blue state as a boost to possible presidential aspirations in 2016. He began making his pitch in the final days of his campaign.

“And, remember this — it all ends right here. America’s watching, everybody. America’s watching,” Christie said at a campaign stop in Keansburg, N.J., on Saturday.

“A dispirited and angry and cynical America who, after they watched the shenanigans in Washington, D.C., cannot believe — cannot believe — that the government can work anywhere. Well on Tuesday night, we’re going to show them that it works in New Jersey.”

  1. I always like to think of Christy as Pizza the Hut. Maybe someday, we will all get lucky when he becomes trapped in his own limo and eats himself to death.

  2. It has been known for a long time here at the trenches that a 2016 “election” would consist of Christie versus Clinton, in other words, the “Battle of the Blobs”.
