    favorable still higher than unfavorables. Of course the poll was conducted by Rasmussen.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s favorability rating is down 8 points since the outbreak of “Bridgegate,” although he remains popular, according to a Rasmussen poll released Friday.

    According to the survey, 55 percent of likely New Jersey voters now hold a favorable opinion of Christie, while 44 percent view him unfavorably. The current numbers are a drop off in support for Christie since his reelection, when he boasted a 63 percent favorability rating.

      I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked.

      So once we engage the Rasmussen Compensators (tm),  that might put him a bit below 50%.
