Poll: Chris Christie’s popularity gets a big boost…

posted at 8:56 pm on November 21, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is sitting atop many Republicans’ you-know-what-list these days, after what seemed like some unnecessarily excessive displays of ultra-bipartisan praise of Obama in the pre-election wake of Hurricane Sandy. Yes, everyone understands that he’s the Republican governor of a blueish state and that some well-placed schmoozing to the federal government can help him gain more federal resources for his domain, but it did seem kind of over-the-top, especially after Romney gave him the keynote slot at the Republican National Convention. As Allahpundit already noted, it’s tough to believe that Christie wasn’t milking the situation for all it was worth to appeal to Democrats ahead of what could come down to a tough gubernatorial race against Newark Mayor Cory Booker, and he all-too-aptly demonstrated that for all of his conservative bombast, he’s got plenty of wily politician in him, too.

Apparently, it worked out pretty well for him — maybe not with the GOP on the whole, but at least in terms of his state-reelection prospects, it definitely gave him a popularity-boost. Via the WSJ:

Nearly two-thirds of respondents to the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released Wednesday had a favorable view of Christie, a 17 percentage point gain from the institute’s last poll in September. …

In terms of  Christie’s response to the storm, 92% of the 1,225 residents polled said he handled it very well, including a large number of women, Democrats and those earning less than $50,000. Christie has struggled to maintain the support of women and lower-income residents in the past. …

Republicans nationally have criticized Christie for his support of President Barack Obama‘s response to the storm in New Jersey, but 81% of those polled said it was a sign of “needed cooperation.” Only 12% thought the gestures went too far.

By comparison, the poll notes, Cory Booker’s favorability rating was around 50 percent, and such a big lead over Booker isn’t a bad way for Christie to start off the yearlong countdown to the November 2013 New Jersey gubernatorial race. I don’t know that anybody doubts that Christie is keeping a weather eye on a possible 2016 bid, and if he can get just get reelected back to his governorship, then he’ll be in a prominent position to nurse his image and really start romancing the Republican party. …Weird stuff, this political business.

Look, NJ suffered a lot of damage with Sandy. It’s an emotional time, and Christie has had an opportunity to establish creds even though it meant kissing BO’s a$$.

He will be gobsmacked by Booker. Heck, Booker runs into flaming buildings to save old ladies. He’s black. He has Dem creds…. big time. Think about it… when was the last time a Dem ever did anything heroic or self-sacrificing? (or a Republican, for that matter.)

And NJ is a Dems state. Buh, bye, Christie. Hope you enjoyed sucking up to the SCFAOMF.

Erika I wouldn’t translate popular Northeast Republican to friend of the base right now and that is leaving out the Obama-Sandy knife in the back. No one is going to forget it in 4 years when there are multiple candidates to choose from people get eliminated for simple reasons. Consider Palin didn’t even run in 2012. Getting the ball rolling for President is hard if you start with any handicap that sticks out in people’s mind.

clippermiami on November 21, 2012 at 9:31 PM

Eh, my view is that Christe prioritized his actual job as Governor over the political landscape.

Something I like in a politician.

Compare that to how Obama has handled the Benghazi situation, which has “political considerations” all over it.

I’m not a supporter of Christie because he’s too moderate for me, but on this issue I tend to give him a pass.

I agree with this…I’m from NJ, and Christie is as conservative as Jersey politicians get, but we need better for national office. Plus the Obama-Sandy bromance will not be forgotten.

I do hope that he defeats Booker though, and I think that he has a good shot to do so….such a good shot that Booker may opt to run for Senate instead. One way or another, Booker will be running for Prez in 2016…..

Appeals to moderates and independents, not an extremest, is probably perfectly comfortable telling everyone who doesn’t know how old the Earth is to get bent in an election, bipartisan . . . etc. Just use the old list from this last, lost election. It’s the same list from the lost election before that.

Christy will see how much good his sucking up did when Obimbo comes to New Jersey to campaign HARD for . . . Cory Booker.

And once you’re no longer useful to The Won, well . . . don’t let the door hit you in the ass, right?

What about Leahy’s Senate bill to permit government agencies to read our emails? You won’t hear nada from the republicrats.
Past the tipping point this country has gone with greater than 50% of the population on taxpayer handouts.
It feels like its over, & we must learn to love it or else its Axelrod’s school of re-education.

Oh, Christie; traitor; didn’t you feel the warmth between him & the Dear Leader? Probably follow in Specter’s footsteps & switch parties.

Can anyone ever trust the republican party again after their “Silence Allen West” plan with redistricting?

I also respected him when, earlier this year, Oprah tried to make Gov. Christie cry about being overweight because she obviously feels bad about being overweight. He was like, ‘Yeah I’m fat–whatever‘…

So many qualities I wish could be grafted onto 2016 Presidential hopefuls! But you’ve either got moxie or you don’t.

Christie has repeatedly stated that he was happy being governor of NJ. His actions guarantee that he will remain that for a while, perhaps he might even get to be The Senator from NJ, but he will not do anything that requires national support.

…………………………………………………………..
Insanity is not demanding that two of the party favs don’t sabotage us in the last week of the most important election of my lifetime.
Christie/ozeros hand in hand images were all obama needed to let the DBM pretend that he was indeed bi-partisan after a four years record of never consulting us on anything.
And as for colin polwell:
Here in Florida,which we narrowly lost, Powell did devestating commercials run on tv and radio for our communist leader.
If those of us on the executive committee of my county in Fla. did that we would be booted off the committee.
But when a nat. supposed leader does it its just his opinion!! That’s BullS. Between the two of them I am convinced they cost us the election. And I will never forget, for one.
Mitt Romney was never my first choice. But, I have learned to respect him and admire him. I do think he ran an admirable campaign and were he not sabotaged from within he could have easily won.
We have to stand up for what is right or forever lose the country.
Now is a good time.

rodguy911 on November 22, 2012 at 10:50 AM

From the 2012 bench, Romney really was the best choice. That he lost does not negate that, and had Mr. Etch-A-Sketch evolved just once more on immigration and spent the summer working hard for votes among Hispanics, he’d probably be president-elect now.

Having said that, Republicans have a really outstanding list to choose from for 2016 — Bobby Jindal, Susana Martinez, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Kelly Ayotte. It is this caliber of candidates that Christie will have to battle for the 2016 nomination – not the likes of Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Herman Cain.

My point: Christie’s done.

He might seriously want to consider switching parties.

I guess the idiots would argue that without Barky’s “help” the gas lines in Jersey would have been three times as long …

Christie is a scumbag who deserves a long ride in a Brazen Fisker.

From the 2012 bench, Romney really was the best choice.

The Bringer on November 22, 2012 at 10:58 AM

Not even close. It shouldn’t have mattered, as 2012 was Barky versus America, but Romney was so bad that he even managed to lose an election for which the GOP candidate shouldn’t have made a difference.

2016? First he’ll have to get his head out of Obama’s @#$……….

Chris Christie is his own best friend.
He should not be considered a viable contender for the 2016 Republicrat ticket under any circumstances.

Christie will be a Democrat by 2016.

Literally. I think it’s quite obvious.

I hope he enjoys it while he can. Once the NJ governor’s campaign really kicks off, he’ll be pulverized by the same media and Democrats that are worshiping at his altar right now. He probably will be in the 20′s by election day.

I’ll be supporting Cory Booker next year; this traitor is dead to me.

Even Magellan would pass on circumnavigating the Christie.

Goble, goble goble. Christie and Jersey deserve each other. Let him be popular there.

I love seeing all you conservatives get angry at Christie but ya know what? You’ll vote for him anyway in 2016 if he’s the nominee because the GOP establishment will convince you that he’s better than the alternative. In fact, they’ll convince you that staying home or voting for the alternative is a traitorous act!

And again – you’ll go lock step to the polls and pull the lever for another RINO.

Who will simply go down in flames again.
