This is BS. The poll only surveyed New Jersey residents. He has historically low approval ratings in New Jersey. That doesn't make him the least popular governor in the US. That honor still belongs to my governor, Sam Brownback.

Before he comes back, he needs to go the fark away first.

He'll bounce back with a cushy job in the private sector. Now that Tilikum is dead, Sea World has an exciting new opening.

Because it's impossible for a Republican to fail downward.

That said, the one good thing Trump has done is to tell Christie to go f*ck himself. I'm willing to put up with another year of him as lame-duck governor if it means he never holds any position of authority ever again.

The sick part of this is that for all his scandals and sleaziness, in the end this is what really killed Christie's career on the national stage:

He shoulda been STIGGINIT instead of working with the President to help his state through a disaster.

He should resign.  He should have resigned before running for President.
Here is a short list of my problems with him:

1.  The government raided the Transportation trust fund.  The only way to get that money back was to raise our gas tax.  Nothing is being done to recover the money that was taken.
2.  After that, he found $300M to renovate the state house.
3.  After that, he tried to push a bill through that would give raises to everyone and allow him to profit from a book deal - this is currently not legal.
4.  Even though medical pot is legal, it's damned near impossible to implement because he has made it impossible for businesses to actually grow the stuff.

The list could go on and on.  But those are the top issues.  As this relates to your post, he might be a "lame duck", but MAN he is an active one.  Those top 3 things happened in the last 2 months.

We need someone to actually do the job and do it right.  Not do the job like someone who is walking away next year.

Less than three months ago, people were still wondering how the GOP would recover after being destroyed by Trump. At this point, truly nothing would surprise me.

Fatso's latest talk is he is going to get tough on drugs during his last year. Which of course means pointless enforcement on minor infractions without any consideration for the bigger picture (i.e. how pointless this era of prohibition is).

idrow: litespeed74: I don't know why but I'd love to see this dude running for his life as a pack of lions  hunt him down.  I'd record it then watch it in slow motion.

Oh, I'd love to see that.  But just for added fun, put a pork chop necklace on him before giving him a 10 second head start.

LOL.
I'm sure 'porkchop necklace' is something I don't want to gis.

How the hell is Christie worse than Brownback?

Not complaining, I'm honestly curious.

hes a republican governor in a blue state.

how popular can he be?

theres a soft cap because of party first types.

Because, before he thought sometime in 2013 that he was going to be the next President, he was actually doing a half-decent job. And I say that as a Corzine/Buono voter.
