The falling popularity of a governor

Guess which governor’s popularity has dropped 13 percent since earlier this year and whose job approval rating is now ten points in the negative with 53 percent of voters not happy with the job the governor is doing?

It is not North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue. It is Republican Chris Christie of New Jersey and the numbers are from a recent survey by Public Policy Polling.

Christie is often cited by folks on the Right as a governor who is doing things the right way. Well, not according to the voters of New Jersey.

People everywhere are anxious and worried and are taking it out on the politicians in power, Democrats or Republicans.

In case you are wondering about Perdue’s numbers, they are better than Christie’s even if you use the results from the latest Civitas Poll that claims that 44 percent of North Carolina approve of the job Perdue is doing and 47 percent disapprove.

    Christie is trying to save New Jersey from financial collapse, and is making some very tough decisions Obviously, the unions and freeloaders don’t like this. Anyone trying to end the status quo will not be popular.

    Our state economy need a serious balanced approach. its too many citizens can be damaged if general assembly and the governor do not set down and compromise for the good of the citizens. i know this is not a profound statement but a serious statement. it is going to take general assembly along with the governor to take a real time approach to do the best they can to aide all citizens of north carolina with their best efforts to bring our state back in balance. even if they put together a ten year approach plan that gradually bring our economy into balance with changes fore thje better growing every year. listen to the citizens of north carolina and their needs lets keep this state a state of fair for all citizens as a major vote of our chooses.
