5. Actually, I suspect that Christie is holding on to ANY media person the least bit sympathetic

at this point. The tables already turned here - he needs them more than they need him.

If everything alleged on ANY of the major charges is proven, it is no longer good press for a 2016 run, but the media verdict on who he is and what he achieved with his entire life. He could soon be where Blagoavitch was before the charges actually came down. Imagine the rollercoaster ride this egotist has been on - when through a series of lucky breaks, he became not just the governor of NJ, but the media favorite Republican front runner.

He could survive this, but though the media says his polling numbers have not changed - any reasonable look at them show they have -- and it is most obvious in the head to head with Clinton. There was NO big news that made Clinton stronger - in fact, the last few weeks - in absence of Christie would be neutral to negative with the "hit list" non story and the Senate report. Yet there is a double digit change in her favor. This is real and it is always suppose to be harder to win back voters you lost vs voters you never had.

It could be his string of lucky breaks has been replaced by what his actions deserve.
