With opinions running favorably for Republican Governor Chris Christie in New Jersey from the handling of the Hurricane Sandy disaster, he is building a huge lead over his likely opponent. Democratic Newark Mayor Cory Booker has been exploring the possibility of challenging the Governor. LGBT leaders in New Jersey have been supporting the Mayor's bid because Christie vetoed marriage equality.

Two new polls show right now that Christie might be hard to beat.

The Rutgers-Eagleton poll shows that in a match-up next November Christie would receive 53% of the vote to 34% for Booker.

The new Quinnipiac Poll has Christie's favorability rating going through the roof. It shows an astounding 95% of New Jersey voters believe Christie is doing an excellent or good job with Hurricane Sandy and a 72% approval rating overall.

Even 69% of the New Jersey Republicans supported Christie's praise of the President doing the disaster.
