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

Bwah, hah, hah!

The poll, conducted between March 23-28, found 32 percent of voters disapprove of the job Christie is doing. In a March 3 Fairleigh Dickinson poll, the governor’s approval rating was 52 percent, with 21 percent disapproving of his performance. His personal popularity has taken even more of a hit, with 38 percent of voters viewing him favorably and 39 percent unfavorably – down from a 47 percent favorable to 25 unfavorable rating before his budget speech.
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Oh, and how about this:
Sixty-two percent approved of his proposal to cap property tax hikes at 2.5 percent and the same percentage favors increasing the income tax on households earning over $400,000. 
I hope the Jersey Dems show a little more brass than the national ones and push this $400K+ tax hard; it's needed and it's a political winner.
