I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009

Not a Whole Lotta of Love for Christie

Via Capitol Quickies, here are the latest Eagleton-Rutgers poll results on Christie and his budget:
The Poll finds impressions of Christie dropped from 45 percent favorable and 26 percent unfavorable in February 2010 to 33 percent favorable and 37 percent unfavorable following his March 16 budget address.
Hmm, wonder why...

“The primary event that occurred between our February Poll and the post-budget poll was the budget address,” said Redlawsk. “While Christie has taken a number of actions that might bother some groups, the budget was the most visible, and it has clearly resulted in a major negative shift in opinion about the Governor.” 
Christie has lost support across all parties, but most notably among independents, whose positive feelings dropped from 48 percent in February to 34 percent in March...
There is a very, very good chance that the next governor of New Jersey will be the Democrat who stands up first and argues most forcefully against this budget.
