  •  Either way, 59% might seem dramatically better (7+ / 0-)

    for Democrats but it's astoundingly difficult to defeat such a politician, either way.

    •  Wait for the news to register... (10+ / 0-)

      but I don't think it will change much.

      The guy killed off 6000 construction jobs immediately and 44,000 permanent jobs in the state after completion of the tunnel project.

      He lays off 44,000 public employees in his first six months of office while giving a $1.5 billion dollar tax cut to the wealthy...

      He created a major major transit choke point for state residents who work in NYC... the current tunnel runs at 100% capacity already and the tunnel was supposed to correct the problem.

      And what do the Jersey folks think???

      Or should the question really be... do people in NJ think???

      Poll: Gov. Christie is more popular than ever before

      TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is more popular than ever, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released this morning.

      The poll, conducted from April 3 to 9, found 59 percent of voters approve of the governor’s performance in office, while 36 percent disapprove.

      Snip!

      Christie's poll numbers are approaching the highest Quinnipiac has measured for an elected governor since it began polling on New Jersey governors in 1996. The most popular elected governor was Gov. Christie Whitman, who once held a 62 percent approval rating. In December 2005, When then-Senate President Richard Codey was serving as an unelected governor to fill the remainder of former Gov. Jim McGreevey's term, he reached a 70 percent approval rating — the highest Quinnipiac has measured for a New Jersey governor.

      Despite Christie’s popularity, his tax cut plan doesn’t fare as well as legislative Democrats’ proposal.

      When given a choice between Christie’s proposal to cut income taxes 10 percent across the board and Senate President Stephen Sweeney’s 10 percent property tax credit for households making under $250,000, voters overwhelmingly support Sweeny’s, 54 percent to 27 percent.

      New Jersey is 31st. in job creation right behind Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, and New Hampshire...

      Guess the NJ residents don't like jobs!
