Rasmussen: 54% in NJ think Christie knew of bridge retaliation

Epic News Conference = Epic Fail

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_state_surveys/new_jersey/56_in_nj_think_christie_should_resign_if_he_knew_about_fort_lee_retaliation

Most New Jersey voters think itís likely Governor Chris Christie was aware of the Fort Lee traffic lane closures before they happened and should resign if this is proven. But voters in the state still think the governor is doing a better job than President Obama.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 54% of Likely New Jersey Voters believe itís at least somewhat likely that Christie was aware that traffic lanes onto the George Washington Bridge were being closed as retaliation for the mayor of Fort Leeís refusal to support the governorís reelection. Thirty-six percent (36%) think itís unlikely Christie was aware beforehand. This includes 30% who say itís Very Likely he was aware and 17% who say itís Not At All Likely.

(snip)

Thirty-nine percent (39%) of all voters in the state say they are less likely to vote for Christie to be president in 2016 because of the Fort Lee incident. Fourteen percent (14%) are more likely to vote for him. Another 39% say the incident will have no impact on their voting decision.

(snip)

This survey was taken last night following Christieís lengthy press conference in which he apologized for the Fort Lee incident in early September and announced that he had fired the top staff member who was involved. He repeatedly insisted that he was unaware that the lane closures were anything more than a routine traffic study until he read media reports yesterday morning citing e-mails in which the staff member apparently initiated the lane closures as political retaliation. The governor said he is still investigating the matter.

3. That's probably the extreme right who were not happy that he appeared with President Obama

is a few photo ops and bought the false impression that he was a miserable RINO. NOW they are happy because they see the REAL Christie, their kind of guy, someone who will go to any length to destroy 'liberals'. He really IS a bully. For them that is an endorsement.

5. Oh and let it be know

I don't believe it was retaliation against the Mayor of Ft. Lee at all . . .

When the media starts running with Maddow's story - or people connect the dots themselves and ask the media to start the official timeline on the 12th of August - the story in the numbers will change.
