Did Chris Christie Cost Mitt Romney the Election?

After New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie toured the damage left by Hurricane Sandy with President Barack Obama last week, political observers wondered: How much damage did that do to Republican challenger Mitt Romney?

Ann Coulter, the conservative columnist and author, had a clear take on the impact of a Romney supporter praising the commander-in-chief.

"I don't think he really has done any damage at all," she said on "The Kudlow Report." "If anything, I think Obama touring with Christie made the president look small."

Hours after the super storm knocked out power to 2.4 million New Jersey residents, Christie — who was the keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention — heaped praise on Obama and the Federal Emergency Management Agency for their response to the devastation.

Coulter, however, said it was just good politics on Christie's part, adding that Christie had to make nice with "the grand leader" in order to secure federal funds for his state

She also scoffed at the idea Sandy stopped Romney's momentum, "considering the polls are going to be wrong."

"I have Romney with at least 273 electoral votes," she added.
