As expected, the networks were able to project Chris Christie the winner of the New Jersey gubernatorial election moments after the polls closed at 8:00 p.m. The only questions now are how much he won by and whether he had coattails in the legislative elections.

According to CNN, "Early exit polls indicate the GOP governor grabbing 56% of the female vote, and winning all age groups other than those 18 to 29. Christie also took a fifth of the African-American vote and 45% of Latinos, a much better performance than most Republicans in recent elections."
