When Gov. Chris Christie delivers his State of the State today, he will do so as the most unpopular governor in the history of New Jersey. That may not come as a surprise to anyone following the State House; what’s shocking is how abysmal his ratings actually are. According to today’s Rutgers Eagleton poll, only 5 percent of those surveyed said they will miss the governor when he’s gone: that works out to about 350,000 out of the approximately 7 million adults who live in the Garden State. About 10 times that number said they’ll be glad to see him go — “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
Christie’s report card is just as dismal. He earned a D+ for his overall performance; C- for education and schools; C- for economy and jobs; C- for crime and drugs; D+ for transportation and infrastructure; D for state budget; D for state pension fund; and D for taxes.
Christie’s GPA: 1.3 — not exactly a gentleman’s C.
