Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio

The National Journal has one of its Political Insiders polls up and this time it is the Presidential race in 2016.

GOP insiders:

  • Marco Rubio 40%
  • Jeb Bush 27%
  • Paul Ryan 9%
  • Rick Santorum 9%
  • Chris Christie 8%

Democratic insiders:

  • Jeb Bush 47%
  • Chris Christie 28%,
  • Marco Rubio 13%

And, we all know that if Hillary Clinton wants the Democratic nomination that she will be the nominee.

What do I envision?

A Hillary Clinton vs. Jeb Bush race.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie arrives for a March 2012 Town Hall

Mitt Romney could NOT do worse than Marco Rubio or Chris Christie.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Monday said Romney “might be able to convince” him to serve as his No. 2 on the Republican presidential ticket.

“He might be able to convince me. He’s a convincing guy, but I really love this job. I really want to stay in this job” Christie said during a high school visit in Plainsboro Township, New Jersey.

The popular Republican governor and early Romney backer said he is not interested in serving as vice president, but that he would be open to discussing the position with Romney.

“I really have no interest in being vice president, but if Governor Romney calls and asks me to sit down and talk to him about it, I’d listen because I think you owe the nominee of your party that level of respect and who knows what he’s going to say,” Christie said. “We’ll wait and see.”

I predicted four years ago that John McCain would pick little known Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. This time I think Mitt Romney will choose ……..

Marco Rubio.

Larry Sabato’s Crystall Ball: Romney’s Perfect Vice President

You can watch Sobato’s video above or read his prognostications here.

But, I would be very surprised if Romney does not choose New Jersey Governor Chris Christie or Florida United States Senator Marco Rubio. Mitt would actually have a chance to win with either of these two articulate and LEFT battle hardened POLS.

One other I would mention would be Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.

Forget the rest, as a team with Romney would make it more difficult for the GOP to win.

And, guess what?

Chris Christie has expressed some interest.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) told ABC News he’s “not looking to become vice president” but left the door open to a conversation about it with Mitt Romney.

Said Christie: “But I also think it is extraordinarily arrogant for you to say you won’t even listen to the nominee of your party — especially for me. It’s someone who I’ve been supporting since last October vigorously around the country — that I wouldn’t take a call from Mitt Romney.”

Romney and Christie President 2012: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to Endorse Mitt Romney for President

On the eve of the New Hampshire GOP Presidential debate tonight and within the hour.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will make a surprise appearance Tuesday to endorse Mitt Romney for president, a week after Christie said he had decided not to run.

Christie is planning a joint press conference with the former Massachusetts governor at 3 p.m. in New Hampshire, NBC News has learned.

Christie announced last week that he would not be getting into the race for the Republican nomination, saying “now is not my time,” but gave no indication an endorsement was coming soon.

This should nail down the East Coast GOP delegates for Mitt Romney, along with the announcement today that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is out too.

Unless Rick Perry can execute a “Hail Mary” pass tonight during the debate, it looks like the GOP Presidential nominee will be Mitt Romney.

Now, will Chris Christie be the Vice Presidential running mate?
