Though the next election is three years away, Republicans are gathering this weekend to mull their presidential chances. One poll finds that Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey, would be in the best position to compete against potential Democratic president candidates Joe Biden (the current vice president), New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is far and away the strongest choice among Democrats in polls at this early stage. Christie, however, was not invited to speak to the Conservative Political Action Conference this weekend because he’s too moderate. Another strong possibility for Republicans is Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s running mate in 2012. Which GOP candidate would you bet on to get the nomination for 2016?
