Chris Christie may not be leading in the polls, but that doesn’t seem to affect his confidence.

“I’m gonna be the Republican nominee for president of the United States, then I’m going to beat Hillary Clinton like a drum for president of the United States in the fall,” the New Jersey governor said on The Michael Smerconish Program Thursday.

He also talked about fighting the teachers unions and defended his political record. Plus: Christie shared his thoughts on the real boss of New Jersey, Bruce Springsteen.
