I know you didn't ask me, but I'll answer, because I probably want Christie to lose as much as Buster does. Christie will be re-elected for a few reasons, and very little has to do with what he's done as governor. His his personality fits NJ to a T, he will not face a strong opponent (ie. Cory Booker, who I predict will run for U.S. Senate in 2014 and win handily), and because of how he embraced the President after the storm, he likely earned himself enough Obama voters to win. Which you need in a blue state like NJ.
Christie only beat Corzine, an historically bad governor by 86k votes. If I'm wrong and Booker runs, Christie could lose, but still give him better than a 50-50 shot. Without Booker, 70-30 chance Christie sails to re-election, and runs for president in 2016.
