Governor Christie’s Poll Numbers Drop . . . and This Was before the Bridgegate Trial Started reports, “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the third least-popular governor in the United States, according to a new poll out this week. The poll by the Morning Consult found that the New Jersey Republican’s popularity had been plummeting in the lead-up to the Bridgegate trial. Only Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, and Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy, a Democrat were less popular in their home states, according to the data.”
