In a Christie-Clinton 2 way race (and Christie is more likely to run as her VP), I would vote for Christie.
However, if Christie is on the way to the GOP nomination by March 2016, I expect that there will be a conservative nominee offered as an alternative, who would stand a very good chance of winning with 40-42% of the vote.

The last overweight man elected President was Herbert Hoover, and that was over 80 years ago. Unfortunately, I can see Christie winning the RINO vote against a field of candidates splitting the conservative electorate, as was the case in 2008 and 2012. Last year, Romney carried none of his “home” states: Michigan, where he grew up, Massachusetts, where he served as governor, or New Hampshire, his current residence. Whether the Democrats run Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, or someone from their “farm team”, Christie will not carry blue New Jersey, deep blue New York, or light blue Pennsylvania. He might even lose those states picked up by Romney on 2012 like Indiana and North Carolina.
