POLL: Voters Don’t Think Chris Christie’s a “Bully”
Chris Christie’s political reputation is impenetrable. Despite disagreeing with New Jersey voters on a multitude of issues, he remains wildly popular. And despite nearly four years of regular bullying tactics, he remains in their eyes…not even remotely a bully.
But it turns out, despite nearly four years of being labeled a “bully” by his opponents, voters simply don’t agree. A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll out today says 72 percent of respondents agree with Christie — that the description of him as a “fighter” is more apt than “bully.” “Fighter,” in fact, is the “single word most applied to Christie by voters,” said David Redlawsk, director of the poll and professor of political science at Rutgers.
The fighter, then, appears ever closer to re-election, less than two weeks from now. [Inquirer]
