    Christie Loses Support for Second Term - Bloomberg

    It could be worse for Christie, could be polling Rick Scott numbers.

    Buyers remorse or inability to face the reality of what has to be done? Seems people would rather see platitudes and stick their heads back in the sand than to face facts.
    From sheep to ostrich nearly overnight. I guess the public at large has been mislead to believe its no big deal for so long, now they are incapable of facing reality.

    He is getting quite surly. Not a good look for a fat man, aren't they supposed to be jolly, like Santa Claus? :)

    Push polls are a dime a dozen. Check the demographics and call selected voters (and non voters) and you can get any result the client pays for. I bet Christie could beat Obama in double digets today if he wanted to run for the big one.

    Yup!
    Hammer meet nail.
    No magic genie's lamp for New Jersey voters.
    Now only 43 other states to go facing life-sucking deficits. :eek:

    NJ taxpayers hate all their governors. The givers don't think they do enough to lower taxes, the takers think they aren't getting their share of the pie. This is how we roll.

    But he does need to tone down the rhetoric. That might work great for a prosecutor, but not for a politician. People from out of state may enjoy his fiery sound bites, but for us residents, it's getting old. Believe it or not, people of both parties, have high praise for our teachers and cops. He's out of touch with that issue.

    Fiery soundbites does not a douchebag make. If property taxes go down and employment goes up, he will be re-elected. If they don't, he won't. I wish for the former, but I'm not overly optimistic.
