Sad but he didn't have any traction what so ever and was looking bad and had bad primary results.

George took out Jeb.

Best that Gov Christie dropped out, he wasn't going to win anything after bridge-gate, not to mention his pugnacious style that alienates people and the fact that most humans don't like obese persons. A bunch of the others should drop out too: Santorum, Huckabee, Fiorina, Paul, and Bush.

As a Republican from NJ who is rather socially liberal on most issues, I agree. The majority of candidates are as crazy as certain Republican citizens and say and do stupid things that cater to them and make everyone else mad and cause people to make fun of the GOP and its base. Obviously as my governor and as someone who I think has a similar platform as me and agrees with him on a lot, I'm sad to see Christie go as he's really the most moderate in the race on the GOP side. But like you said, the majority of the GOP voting base at the moment is rather extreme and Christie does not cater to that majority. Like I said, many are busy complaining that he hugged Obama and other stupid trivial stuff like that that causes them to refuse to pay him any attention.

I "like" him on Facebook and he just doesn't get the online support other candidates do. Most of his posts have under 1,000 likes, sometimes as low as 300, meanwhile Carson and Trump etc. are in the tens of thousands. Christie just never had that popularity in this race. I've been saying for a while now that his online numbers on social media are embarrassing and just another nail in his coffin.

I actually though that Santorum had dropped out. Didn't he endorse Rubio but couldn't name any accomplishments of his?

Things are starting to run together.

Bush will be in till the bitter end. Huckabee is done; Florina is done.

Good...as a president he would stink; but maybe whoever is elected will look at him for Attorney General!

Still think everyone is writing Rubio off too soon. Yes, Christie did what someone wanted him to do: put Rubio in his place and low and behold it looks like he did that while helping Bush, but I still wouldn't gamble on Bush. After super Tues. I might feel differently.

BREAKING: Chris Christie To Drop Out of Presidential Race | Mediaite

I will always be grateful to him for calling out the parrot Rubio. I hope he does well and maybe snags a cabinet position. He didn't have evil vibes like many of the candidates.
