New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, although not running for President in 2012, is warning the GOP not to underestimate the democrats when it comes to re-electing Barack Obama.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says it'll be tough for the Republican nominee to unseat President Barack Obama in 2012.

The Republican says it's possible for his party to take the White House next year _ especially if unemployment remains high. But he cautioned against underestimating the Democratic president's political savvy.

Christie was asked to handicap the contest Monday during an interview on Facebook that was streamed live from the social networking site's Palo Alto, Calif. headquarters.

Somewhere Ann Coulter is saying, "Well Christie, if you chose to run it wouldn't be as much of an uphill battle."
