New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has reached his lowest approval rating to date according to a Quinnipiac poll.

A majority — 53 percent to 38 percent — thinks the governor knew about the traffic situation on the George Washington Bridge, but most say that he did not personally order it, according to a Quinnipiac University poll out Monday.

If it is proven that Christie ordered the traffic jam in Fort Lee, 34 percent say the Republican should be removed from office, 29 percent say he should be both removed and prosecuted on criminal charges, and 29 percent say he should apologize.

Garden State voters disapprove of the job Christie is doing as governor — 56 percent to 38 percent. The numbers mark his lowest Quinnipiac approval rating ever, as well as the worst rating for any governor this year in states surveyed by the university.

    Just wait til it becomes common knowledge about what Christie is doing with water in NJ. Privatizing water utilities could very well become a major political/heath disaster in that state. Putting the power of who gets water in the hands of private companies does not bode well for the people of NJ. Thank you Christie for giving away something absolutely necessary for life to big business.

    ” The numbers mark his lowest Quinnipiac approval rating ever, as well as the worst rating for any governor this year in states surveyed by the university”
    He still polls high in the “saying stupid sh!t” category.

      Everybody excels at something, some just excel at something of worth and others, not so.

    His bid for the top post is as dead as his approval rating. It looks like Christie is…

    Presidential candidates Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Marco Rubio both voted against providing hurricane Sandy relief to the people of New Jersey. The federal funding was provided despite the conservative opposition, and most of us remember President Obama coming to New Jersey to personally view the damage and meet with the citizens.

    Yet as noted in the article from Anomaly’s FreakOut Nation, Gov. Christie has taken the hard right turn towards bat-shit insanity which is required for anyone seeking to be the GOP 2016 nominee, and now questions what the President cares about.

    Meanwhile, he has not a word of criticism for the two Republican Senators running for President who if they had their way would have prevented New Jersey from receiving the assistance the state desperately needed. So I do not think it is really news that Gov. Christie is dropping in the polls. Two faced hypocrites are seldom popular public figures, except of course in the far right wing GOP base. Two faced hypocrisy is an essential component of winning their vote. Just look at Sarah (free oil money checks to everybody) Palin who rails against socialism but presided over an increase in the benefit provided by arguably the most generous socialist program in the entire country. Everybody gets a check, even if they don’t need it and Palin helped raise oil company taxes to make sure those checks got even bigger.

    So the cognitive dissonance on which Christie must now depend in order to woo the GOP base is hardly unprecedented. It is what those folks do. But as someone who once thought that Gov. Christie might be one of the vanishing breed known as a reasonable Republican, I had hoped for better from him.

    Oh well, fat jokes still pi$$ me off, so watch it folks.

    Otherwise, when it comes to Chris Christie, f*ck him too….

    Christie is too busy pandering to hog farmers in Iowa to care about his own constituents. That will lose you some support.
