Bloomberg reports that Chris Christie’s favorables are down. People polled are dissatisfied with cuts in the budget.
To be fair to some New Jersey residents, they aren’t newly stupid. A majority in that poll have been stupid for a very long time. I am fascinated by the mouthbreathers who listened to Christie campaign and detail EXACTLY what he was going to do if elected, and now that he is doing it, the people who were once excited by this alternative to the irresponsible ways of the past democrat, and corrupt, governors are perplexed and angry. This is serious stupid. This is “we need a test to be able to vote” stupid.
More than half of New Jersey residents say they wouldn’t back Governor Chris Christie for a second term, disapproving of his choices on a range of policy and personal issues, from killing a commuter tunnel to using a state-police helicopter to attend his son’s baseball game.
Teachers, whose union Christie has targeted on tenure, pay and benefits, received a far higher favorable rating, 76 percent, than the first-term Republican. His favorable rating was 43 percent, according to a Bloomberg New Jersey poll conducted June 20-23.
“Teachers I know got laid off because of him,” Fred Lavin, 61, a poll respondent from Toms River who is troubleshooter for an electronics company, said in a June 24 telephone interview. “He’s not in favor of the average working person.”
Christie campaigned on a theme of fiscal soundness, and in his first year cut $10 billion of spending, including a $3 billion pension payment and money for schools and cities.
I hate dumb people.
