Considering the high number of public workers in NJ that's not surprising. The Gov is doing a great job.

THat has nothing to do with his low ratings , his cuts and handouts to the rich and private companies have affected his ratings. The Middle Class in this state feel left behind and there very angry.

There are over 500,000 public workers in NJ. They are upset that the golden gravy train has been slowed down. Sorry, but the rest of us taxpayers cannot and do not want to pay for your healthcare and pensions. The game has changed for all of us.

What cuts? What handouts? Sounds more like liberal rhetoric with no factual basis .

So what about the Millions of Middle Class who are affected by the cuts , or the fact that hes cutting projects to fund other projects , or giving private companies Millions..... Actually his attacks on the public workers didn't really affect him , when he started doing everything else thats when his rating starting to drop. He also did things to each part of the state to make his rating drop , like ignore South Jersey , or angry Bergen County with trying to overturn the Blue laws or Urban Jersey with trying to end the UEZ. Those things really made the Middle Class Angry in this state ,we felt like were being attacked. And i love how the supporters ignore that , and blame it on the unions and there power....

The Cuts to Seniors , Transit , and handouts to the Xanadu , Newark Coperation relocation's , and a few other companies.... You cannot say the state is broke and turn around and hand out Hundreds of Millions to Private..... What about small businesses?

The state is broke. There is no money for all those programs. The well has dried up.

Again, any specifics?

Somehow the numbers don't add up as the strategy CC follows feels so very good to the taxpayers.

The taxpayers were not represented in the negotiations between the unions and the negotiators purchased with its members' conscripted dues.

A double whammy for union members as they are taxpayers as well as dues paying union members. Money from both those sources became the D-party's institutional source of funding as political influence was gladly sold and purchased.

Imagine not be able to have a job unless you split the profits with the union elite! Right out of the "Godfather" movie. Protection money over which you have no say as to how it is spent.

CC is the only governor with the courage and perspective to set the state right. CC is the last stand against NJ continuing a long slow but sure fall into oblivion.

For anyone against CC and claiming he favors millionaires because he veoted the millionaires' tax reveals the unethical character of CC's opposition as Corzine and the D-party had the votes to pass the millionaires tax and chose not to. To align with outright liars will always place you in a vulnerable position that inevitably results in catastrophe and a feeling of being the kind of 'dirty' that soap will not wash away.

Survey all you want, it won't pass the 'red faced test' as support for CC is stronger than ever.

What politician currently in office has great numbers? As long as the "recovery" is weak and unemployment remains high, all poll numbers for both parties will suffer.
