A survey taken Thursday after Chris Christie's marathon news conference shows that a majority, 54%, of New Jersey voters believe it is at least "somewhat likely" the Governor was aware that the infamous lane closures on the George Washington Bridge were an act of political retaliation. Only 36% believe it is unlikely. Almost the same number, 56%, want Christie to resign if it's discovered he did know.



Not surprisingly, 75% of Democrats think it’s likely Christie, a Republican, was aware of the Fort Lee retaliation beforehand, but just 34% of GOP voters and 46% of unaffiliated voters agree. Seventy-three percent (73%) of Democrats and 52% of unaffiliated voters believe Christie should resign if he was aware of the lane closures beforehand; 50% of Republicans disagree.

Thirty-nine percent (39%) of all voters in the state say they are less likely to vote for Christie to be president in 2016 because of the Fort Lee incident. Fourteen percent (14%) are more likely to vote for him. Another 39% say the incident will have no impact on their voting decision.



As every political analyst has been saying, Christie can survive the BridgeGate scandal if everything he said at the Thursday news conference proves true. And he is toast if it doesn't.

This poll also shows that a thorough, independent investigation can surprise a lot of voters if it proves Christie's hands are clean.

Either way, this happening directly under Christie's nose will be a part of his political legacy for as long as he is in politics.

New Jersey voters .... believe it is at least "somewhat likely" the Governor was aware that the infamous lane closures on the George Washington Bridge were an act of political retaliation.

Retaliation for what?

The mayor of Fort Lee says he was never approached by the Christie camp seeking his endorsement. Besides, Christie was sailing to reelection. He didn't need the democrat mayor's endorsement, nor did he seek it.

So why would an experienced prosecutor like Christie risk such a lame stunt? Look closely, there was NO MOTIVE for Christie to retaliate against the mayor. None.

What are the highlights of today's media coverage of failed Obamacare?

You say little or nothing? Apparently the normal order has been restored, whereby democrats and some Republicans attack Republicans.

Major themes:

democrats - 'republicans are evil--looky at Christie the devil'

republicans - we're victims, the media isn't fair to us

Yep... and don't forget he was asked about this by the NJ press back in December and made a big joke out of it which is what led to a member of the NJ legislature launching an investigation which brings us to this week... so the guy everyone loved to praise is responsible for knocking Obamacare off the news.

A picture of 56% of New Jersey.

I really, really, really wish you weren't correct.

And now those who hate him are doing their level best to make sure this balloon stays afloat as long as possible.  Two wrongs do not a right make.
