It doesn't matter that there is no proof-it damaged his image and took the air out if his momentum..

What momentum? It was the Democrats who speculated his "frontrunner status" for the 2016 GOP nomination. They then attempted to use "bridgegate" as his "big scandal" to invalidate him.

I stand by my assessment that if Christie would not be morbidly obese, he would be the top GOP candidate right now.

If his obesity effects his electability so much, how did he win in blue NJ?

Interesting. I would think that would have a  positive effect as far as electability goes, if anything. Looks like he's able to work with the opposition to get things done.
You don't win primaries with moderation.
I don't think that was how any republicans saw it. I think they all saw it as willing to play for the other team as long as he wins.

Meh. The media makes up a lot of the numbers.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Why would media root for trump? They are all liberals, if they had their agenda in mind they would make Jeb boring bush frontrunner and have him lose to Hillary Rodent Clinton

Local and general elections are two completely different animals. Voters look for very different qualities in their governor than they do in their president.

Since when does a local governor have to face off with Ahmedinejad or Putin etc.?

I agree with that, but that still does not justify a 50%+ to 3% difference

The poll above is very inadequate. A. Which poll hides results from non voters? B. Every poll allows voters to change their minds as more and more insights into each candidate come up.

maybe he should take tips from this president who seemed to curb his obesity somewhat. they say he died in his bathtub bc he couldn't out or something?

It does. I don't remember exactly what they call it but something like "allow voters to retract".

ETA: You're right, doesn't seem possible to change in an existing poll. In a new one it's possible to set it that way.

All polls dont reveal preliminary results to potential voters of that poll.
