I don't think Christie has a prayer of winning it. He'll have establishment money backing him at a time when the base is trying to escape the establishment. I think what's going to happen is Christie will be perceived as too far left - Cruz will be perceived as too far right... and there in the center will be Rand Paul, who will walk away with the nomination after winning Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada. Cruz will win SC. Christie will win Florida. Eventually, Rand will be seen as the happy medium between the three.
