New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may indeed be the hottest politician out there ... figuratively. He's leading two 2016 presidential polls among Republicans.
A Rasmussen Reports poll Wednesday shows Christie, who is expected to win reelection in New Jersey handily this year, leading the potential GOP field.
His 21 percent support edges Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (18 percent) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (16 percent), both of whom may also run.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is behind Bush with 15 percent, while 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan garnered 13 percent of the vote.
