Seven out of very eight voters in New Jersey said they were worried about the direction of the nation’s economy over the next year. This figure is nearly identical to the proportion who said they were worried four years ago. In terms of New Jersey’s own economy, six in ten voters said it was not good. Only three in ten said the state’s economy had improved at all over the last year–the same proportion who said it had worsened over that same period. Four in ten voters said the economy has not changed.
One year after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the state, one-fourth of New Jersey voters said they were severely affected by the storm, and seven in eight voters said they approved of Gov. Chris Christie’s handling of the problems it caused.
The de Blasio administration would become a laboratory for modern progressivism — a test of whether an anti-establishment activist can effectively manage a sprawling municipal government and whether his policy prescriptions can actually lessen growing inequality between the rich and the poor.
So far, Ken Cuccinelli is narrowly winning independents and married voters, but Terry McAuliffe leads with female voters, voters under 45, and unmarried men and women.
Congratulations to Governor Christie on his impressive re-election victory tonight,” said Chairman Priebus. “During his first term, the governor proved that Republican principles get results—even in a state the pundits like to call a ‘blue state.’ He brought fiscal responsibility to Trenton, and he brought tax relief to families. He put students before special interests, and in everything he stayed true to his word.
In this race Governor Christie earned significant support among minority voters. That’s a testament to the success of his results-oriented leadership and an inclusive campaign. During this race, the RNC worked alongside the Christie campaign to engage early and often with Hispanic, African American and Asian voters.
Governor Christie ran an excellent race, but more importantly, he’s been a successful governor. New Jersey residents know he’s a man they can trust, and I’m confident he will continue to deliver results for the Garden State in his second term. Chris Christie cruised to re-election in New Jersey Tuesday, it's not yet clear exactly how much of the vote Christie will win.
