Poll: Can Christie Compete in Tonight’s GOP Candidate Debate?

NJ Spotlight | August 6, 2015 | Polling
The governor is going be onstage with candidates who dwarf even his outsized personality. Can he cut it?

Tonight’s the night: 9 p.m. on Fox News, the first official debate of the GOP presidential hopefuls — 10 of them together onstage, elbows and sound bites flying, putdowns zinging, all trying to convince Republican viewers that they have what it takes to be top executive of the world’s only superpower.

It’s going to be tough to stand out in this crowd, particularly with supersized personalities like Donald Trump, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, and Ted Cruz. Then again, Gov. Chris Christie has never been a shrinking violet.
