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.”
