“Do Not Remove” Tag on Mattress More Popular than Christie




 


  




According to new, admittedly unscientific polls, Governor Chris Christie has the unique distinction of being the least popular governor in the United states. I don't know if there's an awards dinner, but if there is it's probably a bummer. 
The title of America's least popular governor is a little confusing. All this poll did was compare the approval ratings of governor's in their home states against each other. For example, Christie may be hugely popular in Wyoming but who gives a damn, because he's governor of New Jersey. So to paraphrase, amongst all the governors in the U.S. Chris Christie has the lowest approval rating in his home state thus making him America's least favorite.
You can say a lot of things about Chris Christie and his dubious new distinction, but you can't say he didn't earn it. As he nears the finish line of his two terms in office the state is inarguably worse off than it was when he took the reins. Our infrastructure is crumbling, mass transit is a mess, our credit rating is in the negative numbers and half his staff has been sentenced to prison. It's been a rough seven plus years for Chris.
Plus, naming him America's least popular governor seems a little mean spirited. I mean, he knows he’s done a terrible job and we know he's done a terrible job, putting a label on it seems a little bit excessive.
