The newest polling from Public Policy Polling should be enough to melt your brain for the day.
-Chris Christie is now more popular with Democrats nationally than he is with Republicans. His overall favorability is a very strong 51/23, but his +29 standing with Democrats (52/23) is higher than his +21 with GOP voters (48/27). He’s most popular with independents at +34 (52/18). Compared to a month ago he’s up a net 12 points with Democrats and down a net 11 points with Republicans.
The amount of popularity he’s lost with Republicans is the most startling. I have said before that he will do nothing but disappoint the far right. He may sound like Rush Limbaugh in some YouTube clips, but he governs like Nixon. Once the members of the far right found out that Christie doesn’t subscribe to their version of reality, the honeymoon was over.
