So it appears that Chris Christie has an all time high approval rating of 72%, in liberal New Jersey. Most attributed it to his proper and non-partisan handling of the whole Sandy ordeal. Chris Christie Approval Rating Hits 72 Percent Considering that pre election the American public thought that the USA was headed in the "wrong direction" and still voted for Obama, gave the Dems more seats in the senate, and more voted for Dem house critters (51.3%), it is pretty obvious that most of America is completely turned off by partisan GOPers. More and more Americans are stepping farther and farther away from the hard religio-rhetoric of the right on the issue of abortion. Illustrated here in the recent Gallup poll: The question is: Should the GOP continue on it's partisan parade? Even though it has been proven (above and in many other circumstances) that their approach to democracy is not favorable amongst Americans as a whole? Chris Christie illustrates that the non-partisan (works TOGETHER), but still hard ass, approach wins approval and votes even with the odds stacked.
