Voters Remorse Grows

Well The Villagers may still adore him but New Jersey appears to have fallen out of love with its blowhard Governor.
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.
Also, too, "The governor was viewed unfavorably by 53 percent of those polled."

You all know I just loathe polls, but the breakdowns on the various issues are worth reading. It appears now that reality has caught up with the campaign rhetoric, those "tough choices" don't look so attractive anymore.

Meanwhile, this isn't exactly new news, her numbers have been tanking for a very long time, but Obama would beat Palin in Alaska. Of course, that assumes the Yukon's former half-term governor would actually run for the office. Still betting it against it myself. Not while America's biggest grifter can cash in so handsomely on simply pretending to be interested in actually doing the job.

Yeah, New Jersey -- get in line! Right behind Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Florida .. who am I forgetting? Hell, Tennessee might not be that far behind.

Thing is, when election day rolls around voters will all be assaulted with Koch-funded fear porn and vote the same assholes (or ones very much like them) back into office.

I'm so over the politics in this country you have NO idea.

I think you forgot Indiana SoBeale. And NC is rather disgusted with their first GOP controlled legislature in 100 years or something like that.

But I hear you. Thinking we're all struggling with the giveashit anymore malady. It's discouraging to see how embedded the fake narratives are in the discourse. Not a day goes by that I don't want to just shut down the puter and move to that deserted beach on the Carribean and just watch the waves roll in until the rapture comes...
