Who knows if it’s because of Bridgegate, or because of conservatives’ underlying suspicion of him, but Chris Christie’s New Hampshire support in the 2016 presidential election has declined precipitously. Power Line, a conservative blog, reports on the result of a new poll of Granite State Republican primary voters.

For Christie, there is very little good news in this poll. Sure, he places fourth with 12 percent support. But last July, the Granite State poll had him in the lead at 21 percent.




Moreover, Christie is the second choice of only 4 percent of those polled. And his favorability rating of +1 percent is the lowest of any serious or even semi-serious potential candidate in the survey.

New Hampshire is important because its first-in-the-nation primaries set the tone for the presidential nominating race.

    May God speak to the hearts of wicked men who have forsaken Gods children and abandon them to evil men.

    Christie will never become President. He sold out the people of God to evil political bosses who caused job loss and suffering. God blessed him to lead and help his children by providing jobs. Once he turned his back on Gods children, Christie fell nationally. I need a job and you abandon me. You let a child of God fall

    You threw me away so God let National shame fall on you. Everything you allowed those evil men to do to me, God let it fall back on you even worse.

    You allowed my appointment to be take so god took the opportunity for you to become President of the United States

    Norcross and Sweeney set me up and lied. They did this on purpose. Deep down in your heart you knew this, but you ignored me and went along with them. That was where you lost the Presidency and your reputation Nationally.

    You turned your back on a child of God and went with ruthless and wicked men

    Hope you have a change of heart. God is not pleased with you right now
