While the budget impasse was caused by a dispute between Christie and the Democrat-led Legislature, it was the beach photos that made the most news, leading to headlines around the world and memes across the internet.
Christie’s approval rating dropped to 15 percent in the July 10 poll released by Monmouth University.
But if his recent comments are any sign, Christie isn’t letting the criticism get to him.
Christie is serving his past year as governor, with his second and final term ending next January.
Christie was stunned by Roberts’ ignorance of the Bridgegate scandal, which began the decline of Christie’s political career, leading to his miserable approval rating.
President Trump’s ratings in the poll: 35 percent of New Jerseyans approve, 58 percent disapprove.
“It really is hard to drive approval ratings into the single digits barring something like a criminal conviction”.
Goldstein says that he decided to make his own call when he heard the governor get aggressive with his first critical caller.
Christie said he would ask a buddy in the polling business to find out how many metro-area sports fans root for out-of-town teams.
CHRISTIE: Oh, bad optics.
Makes you think Christie was the kind of kid who took his ball and went home when he was told he couldn’t play quarterback.
It was a strong start and most people would find it hard not to rise to it. The photos came during a time of government shutdown, which was responsible for a great deal of the outrage. Tied for the next biggest share was “jerk, profanity used”, according to the survey.
“We have now two-thirds of Republicans who are saying their own Republican governor is doing a bad job”. Only 15 percent believe the state is now better off, with 28 percent saying it’s about the same as it was before his time as governor. “This is a town that, let’s just say to be charitable, leans leftward”.
“66 percent said something negative”.
The Monmouth University Poll also measured public opinion of New Jersey’s two USA senators. Cory A. Booker (D., N.J.), while 30 percent disapprove.
And Sen. Menendez is in positive territory at 41-35, despite being under indictment.
The Monmouth University Poll was conducted by telephone between July 6 and 9 with 800 New Jersey adults.
