You reap what you sow. Chris Christie sucked up to Dear Leader during Hurricane Sandy, then bashed House Speaker John Boehner, and now the Democrats are swooning over the big guy.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie is more popular with Democrats nationally than with members of his own party,according to a poll released today.

The poll, by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, found 51 percent of all respondents view Christie favorably while 23 percent see him unfavorably.

Among Democrats, 52 percent have a favorable impression of Christie while 23 percent have an unfavorable one. Among Republicans, 48 percent have favorable view and 27 percent have an unfavorable view. From last month, Christie’s standing among Democrats has improved by 12 points, while his standing among Republicans has declined by 11 points, according to pollster Tom Jensen.

Is there an acronym for “Democrat in all but name only”? Because if Chris Christie is supposed to be some kind of standard-bearer for the GOP, well, the GOP is doomed.

    imo the only claim to fame fatass has is taking on the teachers union & he has been riding on that ever since. I agree completely with serfer, fatass over a hot ass with intelligence & wit too boot! the establishment gop needs more than a major douche.

    Maybe he’s really just a big inflatable costume, you know, like the Nebraska Cornhusker mascot, and inside is his alter-ego, Charlie Crist.

    The names are just too much alike…

    I’m not really disappointed in Christie, but only because I don’t trust any politician. Politicians never understand that the first rule is “don’t screw things up.” Instead, they become flattered by the media attention, and when citizens start telling them “you can fix things,” they start believing this. And then they start screwing things up.

    Christie seems to have made the mistake in believing that because he took on the teacher’s unions and received some good press about it, people believed that he was the answer to what ails us. Instead, he has just become part of the larger problem.

    I had to read that first sentence a couple of times. I thought you wrote that Christie sucked “Dear leader”. I completely missed the words “up to”. Although, my version is probably just as accurate.

    Chris Christie IS a bit of a Charlie Crist/Alan Grayson hybrid. In my humble opinion. I’m so over him.

    At this point in time you can not be all things to all people. Lines have been struck in the sand, You are with us or you are against us. Christie is not one of US, never has been never will be.

    Just look at his record of who he hangs out with.
    His love of Bruce.. His love of muslims.. His love of hearing himself talk. And His LOVE of all things Boo. He will sell his soul to the devil and then deliver us as well.
    Mr. I need a lap band can go over to the other side, oh wait he is already there. Opportunist that’s what he is. He will vote to take away our guns. Rino no, just like Boo its all about him.
