New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican who has used public-employee unions as his personal chew toy, placed third in the presidential straw poll Saturday at the close of the Conservative Political Action Conference, the premier gathering of righty political activists.
Mr. Christie was tied for third place with Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico who wants to legalize weed. They each had 6 percent.
Of course Christie has said multiple times that he will not be running for president in 2012.
