Chris Christie Hits Lowest Approval Rating

Not even two weeks after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s beach scandal, the governor gets the worst news since he’s been elected governor.

But it’s hard to say he didn’t deserve it.

If you’ll recall, just before Independence Day, Christie was seen vacationing on a secluded beach that was closed to the public due to a government shutdown.

The latest Monmouth University Poll found Christie’s job rating at an all-time low, with only 15 percent of adults in the state approving of his job performance and a whopping 80 percent disapproving.

“It really is difficult to drive approval ratings into the single digits barring something like a criminal conviction. However, you have to admire Christie’s seeming tenacity for trying to get his numbers down to that level,” Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, said.

“In reality, Christie may have found the floor for his ratings, but it’s a level where most of his constituents now feel his time in office has hurt the state.”

    Not to worry, the East Coast lib mentality will keep him in office no matter what he does.

    The overgrown elephant on the beach.

      If you mentioned someone being over weight and if it was a woman, the libs would be on you like a chicken on a June bug..Example of Mika having a face life while with Joe at Mara largo . Terrible to taalk about a woman having a face lift!! Different standards for women/men, Republicans and Democrats.? Another example, Congressman John Lewis of Georgia, a member of the Congressional BLACK CAUCUS, said he would not attend an invitation to a meeting with the President had invited them to..Because the president is Racist!!. I guess “diversity’ only works in one direction. Evidently Lewis doesn’t realize he was sent to Congress to represent everyone in his district, not just the Blacks?? DRAIN THE SWAMP.

    So interesting that everybody’s sonpolitically correct unless someone has a weight issue. Somehow they justify in their minds that it’s OK to call Chris Christie and elephant on the beach, etc. Someone’s weight does not define who they are and one with think with anybody with an ounce of intelligence would understand that by now. Christie made a big major mistake in closing the beaches but in the same breath New Jersey has a Democratically controlled House and Senate that continues to fail. None of this should’ve gotten to the point where Governor Christie had to close the beaches because the Democrats didn’t get their act together and dragged their feet and did not pass a budget. The Democrats preferred to play political games at the expense of the Residents of New Jersey. Once again the Democrats have failed and made victimized the people they’re supposed to be representing.

    It’s unfathomable to me, that someone who has had to go through one major political gaff like BridgeGate, would think THIS would be a good idea. Hey family, I’ve closed the beach…let get the family together and go~~no one will be there!! Even writing this makes me cringe, that common sense wouldn’t prevail.

      He got his point across and what he did, moved them to pass a budget.
      When his legislature wouldn’t pass the budget… he, Christie went to the beach and showed the public what they were missing. They put pressure on their representatives…and Christie got his budget and the people got their beaches. Sounds like a win-win to me?? Move than one way to skin a cat. And these “fat cats” needed a skinning.

        I’d love to believe that. But, HE’S the one that looked bad not the legislature. It’s HIS image that took the hit and he’s the one that looks like an elitist.

    I don’t have a problem with Christie hitting the beach with his family AND even if it was closed to the public. This “smear” came quickly after the Scalise shooting, when the media “didn’t care” that he was shot!

    Our officials are targets so I think this was just fine to do this. If you feel like you could be a target, you sure don’t want your family caught up in that so more power to Christie
