25. N.J. is still in the economic shitter.

 

Christie won't propose raising taxes which would help somewhat. Some of the problem is because of underfunding of public employees' pensions. He won't fully fund the state's share of the annual pension bill. Nor does he make any effort to pay the past due amount.

Those items should endear him to fundies. The problem is there are fewer and fewer fundies every year.

He has 62% approval in the state. He may be re-elected to the governorship. His biggest problem is that the state employees will be out in force to vote against him. In the last election, the state employee union members stayed home because Corzine instituted furlough days for state workers. The election that Christie won was one with low voter turnout.
