East Brunswick: Would You Vote For Christie Again?

According to Eagleton Poll, Christie would face a tough road to reelection.



East Brunswick residents: Would you elect Chris Christie again as governor of New Jersey?

A recent poll out of the Eagleton Institute of Politics indicated that if Christie ran again, New Jersey voters wouldn't may not send him back to office.  Only 22 percent of registered voters indicated they would support a 2012 presidential bid by Christie, while 65 percent oppose the idea and 12 percent are unsure.

According to the poll, 36 percent of voters think having a governor on the national stage helps New Jersey’s image, 42 percent said it makes no difference and 21 percent said it hurts New Jersey's image.

“The governor continues to deny any interest in running for president in 2012,” said David Redlawsk, director of the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll and professor of political science at Rutgers University via release. “Given these numbers, that’s a pretty good thing. Every time we’ve asked about a presidential run, New Jersey voters have overwhelmingly opposed the idea.”

The results stem from a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll of 773 registered voters conducted with both landline and cell phone households from March 28 to April 4, with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.

Yes, I would definitely vote for him again. He is the only one who has the guts to do what needs to be done to get this state in order.

I would never vote for him. A government official needs to compromise and work with all parties involved. He's a bully and sometimes acts like he's a dictator and doesn't need the other branches of gov't. Kathy

I would definately vote for him again for Governor and I would vote for him for President. He is bright and feisty and determined to do the right thing for New Jersey.

never he bullied the middle class. the states millionaires are growing fat as the stock market has doubled and he won't hear about raising even a little their tax rate but bully the working poor no problem. all he has done is shift the burden to our local towns and when your property taxes keep going up, remember his helicopter ride. don't we all working parents helicopter to our kids baseball games

I didn't vote for him the first time, but didn't vote for Corzine either. I liked what the independent candidate that year (Daggett) had to say. Christie re-election? At this point, I would not vote for him, but then again, I don't know who else would be on the ballot.

I would not vote for him, he does not have compassion for the middle class .The middle class is the backbone of this country. Christie is out of touch with the poor and middle class people of this state. Giving him a second chance in office will spell disaster for our state and its citizens.

The man sold the seniors out! Hurt ever aspect of the middle class. First few months in office loss 400 millon dollars to clerical errors. Spent more time outside the state then in it, does everything behide closed doors, if you disagree he will verbally insult you and there are people who think he is presidential matteral?
