DNC - Why is Christie so unpopular in key states? 

As Chris Christie visits the key early caucus state today, a new NBC/Marist poll shows 1 in 3 Republicans in Iowa dislike Christie. Christie is almost twice as unpopular as any other potential 2016 Republican presidential contender there, and the numbers aren’t much better in New Hampshire. In the home of the first in the nation primary, nearly a third of Republicans also dislike Christie. These numbers certainly don’t gel with Christie’s comment to Diane Sawyer in March that “they love me in Iowa.”


But why don’t they love him?


Well, it seems that his Bridgegate scandal hurt him with Iowa voters. A Des Moines Register poll in March showed that nearly six in 10 Iowa adults disapproved of the way Christie handled Bridgegate – including almost half of Iowa Republicans. But it isn’t just his scandal that won’t sit well with Iowans.


Christie’s economic failures in New Jersey are beginning to follow him across the country, as reported today by the Wall Street Journal. New Jersey’s bond rating is among the worst in the nation. Job growth lags behind neighboring states, and New Jersey ranks 49th in the nation in private-sector job growth since 2010. Under Christie, New Jersey’s credit rating has been downgraded a record six times, and the state’s property taxes remain among the highest in the nation.


To make things worse for Christie, conservatives are taking aim at him – even going online in Iowa with ads attacking his record. And Rick Santorum, the winner of the 2012 Republican caucuses in Iowa, had this to say about Christie today: “To see a record as abysmal as Gov. Christie’s record in the state of New Jersey, I guarantee you that will be a red flag for most voters in the state of Iowa, but also most voters in the Republican primary.”


With his unfavorables climbing in key states, his dismal economic record coming to light, and key conservatives slamming Christie, it’s clear Chris Christie’s troubles are anything but behind him.

Guinta For Congress - Team Guinta in the Lead!  

Polling Released Shows Frank Guinta Beating Congresswoman Shea-Porter

Yesterday, a poll released by the UNH Survey Center showed Frank Guinta beating Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter 46-43.

Josh McElveen, WMUR News Political Director and Anchor said: "The numbers look pretty good for former Congressman Frank Guinta."

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“Granite Staters are sending a message. We are tired of Congresswoman Shea-Porter’s knee jerk support for President Obama. With the struggling economy, and significant challenges at home and abroad, Shea-Porter refuses to hold a town hall to meet with constituents. We need a leader who is willing to stand up to Washington when necessary and who is willing to tackle today's challenges in order to secure a brighter future for all Americans. I look forward to continuing our Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour and meeting with every possible voter because listening to what Granite Staters need and want is where real leadership begins.”
