Iowans disapprove of Christie’s handling of scandal, poll finds

Fifty-seven percent of Iowa adults disapprove of the way New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) has handled the bridge scandal plaguing his administration, according to a new Des Moines Register poll.

That compares to just 18 percent who approve of the way Christie has handled the scandal, in which emails show his then-deputy chief of staff ordered closures to access lanes to the busy George Washington Bridge.

The numbers for independents are also bad for Christie, with 60 percent disapproving and 22 percent approving. Republicans disapprove slightly less, by a margin of 47 percent to 34 percent.

Iowa Republicans will be a crucial bloc if Christie runs for president in 2016, as is widely assumed. They caucus in the country’s first nominating contest.

    The news article in the Des Moines Register says that 703 adults were polled. So if 57% disapprove of Christie, that means that about 400 adults – in IOWA – are now influencing the potential field of candidates for an election that is TWO years away. That’s ridiculous.
