We'll see how long it actually holds. Not that it really matters, he still has a terrible attitude for someone who is running a state, he's too angry.

So did Rudy Giuliani. Same general constituency.

Anger is a sign of sanity and honesty.

That sounds like Bruce Banner's campaign motto.

http://www.politickernj.com/53672/fdu-christie-approval-rating-53

Today's Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind Poll shows 53% of Garden State voters approving of the job Gov. Chris Christie is doing, while 37% disapprove, a net advantage of 16 percentage points and virtually identical to his standing a year ago before his 2011 State of the State address.

Three of five voters (59%) continue to say the state should hold the line on spending rather than raise taxes to support state programs (25%).

“Of course, most candidates for governor or any other office claim they’ll get the budget under control and avoid new taxes,” said Woolley. “Many in the public seem pleasantly surprised that someone stuck to it.”






3 months later, New Jersey still likes the guy.

Chris Christie Responds To Female Hecklers With Offensive Oral Sex Joke.

Quote
It’s difficult to make out exactly what Christie’s critics were yelling, but it’s something to do with jobs going down. Ever the class act, Christie’s response: “You know, something may be going down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.”

Classy guy.

Eh, I think we all thought about it in a dirty way at first but I don't think he meant it that way. I think he meant "going down" as in he was going to take her down the way he does with every other clown that decides to heckle him.

Well, there is one way for Christie to use his versatile tongue for good.

"Something" doesn't go down, someone goes down. I don't see how this fits as an oral sex joke. "Sweetheart" is admittedly condescending, though.

He's also got a nasty mouth and no respect for women, what a great Governor he is.

Chris is soooo unpopular!

http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-centers/polling-institute/new-jersey/release-detail?ReleaseID=1691.

Christie gets a 53 - 39 percent job approval rating

In today's survey, approval is 87 - 9 percent among Republicans and 54 - 37 percent among independent voters while Democrats disapprove 64 - 25 percent. Men approve 60 - 34 percent while women approve 47 - 43 percent.

His overall job approval holds just above 50 percent and 55 percent of New Jerseyans like him personally," Carroll said.

It's been turning for months now.



http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-centers/polling-institute/new-jersey/release-detail?ReleaseID=1711

New Jersey voters approve 55 - 38 percent of the job Christie is doing as governor, compared to his all-time high of 58 - 38 percent October 12. Approval is 62 - 32 percent among men and 49 - 44 percent among women.

Why is this thread titled as such when Christie is clearly one of the most popular governors in the country now?

Because the thread's been going on for a while and there have been several points, including the point at which the thread was created, at which Christie has not been such.

That 38% that disapprove of Christie seems suspiciously close to the percent of New Jersey residents who are on welfare, food stamps, Section 8, are menbers of the teacher's union, or are state employees or in some way depend on the government for their livelihoods.

So that means that Quinnipiac has Christie at his ceiling, effectively? Good to know.

I'll honestly never understand the way those people in New Jersey who do not fall into the categories that you mentioned think. The politics of affluent white-collar suburbia are both alien and inimical to the world that I perceive and live in.

You have accurate (and compatible) statistics for all these things?

The Abbott districts that steal state funds from the suburbs consist of about 20% of the population.

New Jersey has roughly 3.9 million employed, and 625k employed in the public sector. There's the other 16%.

There's a tad of overlap, and some random haters, but the rest of the state loves the Big Dog.
