Can Chris Christie Actually Be Bigger Than Obama in New Jersey?

Why, yes...Yes He Can!

New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie is winning the hearts and minds of New Jersey voters who approve 51 - 36 percent of the job he is doing and say 51 - 39 percent that the Governor is more a "leader" than a "bully," according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

In today's survey, Christie gets a 75 - 13 percent thumbs up from Republicans and a 61 - 29 percent approval from independent voters. Democrats disapprove 63 - 24 percent.

The Governor's approval rating is higher than for other players in Trenton:

•Voters disapprove 28 - 17 percent of the way the State Senate Majority Leader Stephen Sweeney is doing his job, with 55 percent undecided;
•Voters split 19 - 19 percent in their approval of Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, with 63 percent undecided;
•Voters disapprove 45 - 28 percent of the State Assembly;
•Voters disapprove 46 - 30 percent of the State Senate.

In a state where the seoond highest approval rating for a (statewide) elected figure/body is 30%, Christie's 51% is a freaking landslide of support. Having almost 25% of Demcorats uspporting him doesn't hurt any, and is actually quite the amazing total among the ideologicaly rigid East Coast Liberal set...

But here's the kicker:

President Barack Obama's approval rating has dropped to an all-time low in New Jersey, a split 47 - 47 percent, down from a 50 - 46 percent approval rating June 17. Democrats approve of the President 80 - 16 percent while Republicans disapprove 80 - 14 percent. Independent voters disapprove 53 - 41 percent, compared to a 52 - 45 percent disapproval June 17.

Obama polling worse than Chris Christie in a state known as little as nine months ago as "Blue Jersey"? What's next?
American Jews becoming Republican? Oh, sh*t...

Time to draft the Fat Man for the White House...!
