Chris Christie’s Approval Rating Drops

Approval is down 15 points since December.

Politico reports that Chris Christie’s approval rating has slid 15 points from December. “The number of New Jerseyans viewing Christie unfavorably has also grown. Voters barely view him favorably, 42 percent to 37 percent, down from a 44 percent to 28 percent favorable rating he enjoyed in January and a significant drop from his February 2013 record-high mark of 70 percent to 19 percent.”

Also bad for his 2016 presidential run: 54 percent of Jersey voters say Christie doesn’t have the temperament to be president.

    What? Just because his administration is currupt and uses cronyism and intimidation people are turning away from him? Just because most of his hand picked inner circle are what he calls liars and with deceptive behavior. Just because he’s ducking and hiding. I mean he held a town hall meeting folks. Just because he held it in a very red district then warned people not to bring up the bridge means he’s not transparent. Just because he blames everyone for his mistakes including his own appointees and FEMA or that most of his staff went rouge makes him incompetent? We all need a Pres who refuses to be challenged, who humiliates educators and vets and puts these low lives in their place. Yep, Christie is our man. One who we can count on to hide the truth with charm and charisma, one who we can count on to put his personal gain ahead of us pathetic citizens who have the nerve to question his authority. These polls must be wrong. Why wouldn’t we continue to support him just because we were duped?
