Romney debate performance will change presidential race, says Chris Christie

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie believes that Republican nominee Mitt Romney will turn the presidential race around in Wednesday’s debate with President Barack Obama.

“On Wednesday night Mitt Romney is going to be standing on the same stage as the president of the United States. And I am telling you David, come Thursday morning the entire narrative of this race is going to change," Christie told NBC’s David Gregory while being interview on Meet the Press.

When asked whether it was too late for Romney to reverse polling numbers, which show him lagging Obama in battleground states such as New Hampshire, Nevada and Ohio, Christie said “the general public that I speak to in New Jersey and elsewhere are just beginning to really tune in to this race."

“Wednesday night is the restart of this campaign,” Christie argued. “I think you’re going to see those (polling) numbers move right back in the other direction” as a result of the debate.

Christie, whom some Republicans wanted to run for the presidential nomination, gave the keynote address at the party’s national convention. He could emerge as a leading contender for the 2016 nomination if Romney loses on November 6.
