Christie Would Help Romney the Most

A new Public Policy Polling survey finds President Obama leading Mitt Romney nationally, 49% to 46%.

The running mate who helps Romney most -- putting him in a 47% to 47% tie with Obama -- is Chris Christie. Jeb Bush pulls Romney to within a point at 48% to 47% and Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum both get him to within two points at 48% to 46%.

Key takeaway: The main positive effect of these potential running mates is to help Romney shore up the Republican vote.
