And here I thought you were talking about the 717, 973 of us who didn’t vote for Steve Lonegan yesterday (though I am still worried about the 578,985 who did. But about this other thing, yeah absolutely, carry on. Promoted by Rosi.
Contrary to their weird love of Chris Christie and his dubious record of success, it turns out New Jerseyan’s aren’t idiots after all.
As the government shutdown enters its third week, New Jersey’s registered voters reflect the rest of the nation’s disapproval and assign blame to the Republican Party, according to a new Rutgers-Eagleton Poll.
Just one quarter think congressional Republicans did the right thing by insisting to defund Obamacare. As a result, Republicans are suffering the brunt of the blame: more than half of Garden State voters say the shutdown is the GOP’s fault, while 19 percent blame President Obama. Only 5 percent blame on Democrats in Congress, although 20 percent say there is blame enough for everyone.
That’s 52 percent blaming the GOP in Congress, 19 percent blaming President Obama, and just five percent blaming Democrats in Congress. That means by a 2-1 margin folks here in the Garden State blame the GOP over the Democrats.
Now we need to tie this around the necks of the six GOP House members from New Jersey, get some good candidates and return NJ to a majority Democratic House delegation.
