According to a new poll, only 5% of NJ voters say they will miss him
The State of the State address on Tuesday will serve as a farewell from Governor Chris Christie. A two term governor who won his second term in a landslide election and could have been president, only to collapse in popularity later.
Once enjoying nosebleed high approval ratings, a Rutgers-Eagleton poll just out shows him leaving office with a 19% approval rating. The same poll shows only 5% of respondents saying they will miss him.
Ultimately, what we’ll remember about Chris Christie isn’t Bridgegate. It isn’t pension reform, proposed school funding reform, the opioid epidemic, the gas tax hike. It isn’t the SNL and Letterman appearances or the presidential aspirations. It isn’t his relationship with Donald Trump or the aftermath of Sandy.
What we’ll remember about Christ Christie is the guy who wasn’t afraid to yell back when someone took him on at the boardwalk. Or at the ballgame. Or any of another dozen public spectacles. What we’ll remember about Chris Christie is the passionate swagger whether right or wrong. What we’ll remember most is simply…Chris Christie.
