A majority of New Jersey’s registered voters said Gov. Chris Christie (R) should resign from his post as he ramps up his presidential campaign, according to a poll released Thursday.
Fifty-four percent of voters want Christie to step down while 41 percent said he should continue to run New Jersey as he seeks the Republican presidential nomination, according to the poll from Rutgers-Eagleton.
But when voters were told about efforts by the Democratic legislature to oust the governor, 45 percent said Christie should be "forced" to resign whereas 52 percent said he should remain in his post.
This comes after Wednesday’s poll from Rutgers-Eagleton that said more than half of New jersey residents would describe Christie as “arrogant” and would not describe him as “presidential.”
Old enough to remember when Chris Christie was actually relevant to national GOP politics.
Now he'll be lucky to keep the job he has. Even that 45% of New Jersey voters that agree with the Democratic state legislature that Christie should step down is an awfully high number for an extremely unpopular governor.
Good luck with those last couple of years in your job, Chris. You're going to need it.
