Chris Christie probably gets the award for the Most Clever Way To Spin Polling for his “explanation” to Megyn Kelly as to why 65% of voters in his home state think he would not make a good president. But honesty? Not so much.
In her interview with Christie last night, Kelly cited a Quinnipiac poll that found by a 65-29% margin, New Jersey voters think Christie would not make a good president. “They know you the best. Why shouldn’t we trust them?” Kelly asked.
You have to wonder how Kelly avoided laughing out loud at Christie's answer.
CHRISTIE: They want me to stay. A lot of those people in that 65 percent want me to stay. And I’ve heard that from lots of people at town hall meetings: “Don’t leave to run for president because we want you to stay.”
Kelly did challenge Christie's response. “But they say you would not make a good president,” she said.
Christie came up with an even more laughable "explanation."
CHRISTIE: I think people hear the question they want to hear. The fact is that polls in New Jersey will go up and down as well.
In other words, Christie thinks his own constituents are too stupid to answer poll questions correctly. Maybe that’s because his overall approval is very low, too.
New Jersey voters disapprove 56 - 38 percent of the job Christie is doing as governor, his lowest approval rating ever and the lowest approval rating for any governor this year in the nine states surveyed by Quinnipiac University.
Kelly didn’t point any of that out, of course.
“This Chris Clown couldn’t run a New Jersey bakery.”
LMAO! Naturally Antoinette, because Christie would INSTANTLY EAT EVERYTHING THAT’S INSIDE OF IT!
The Elite Washington GOP Power Machine will not fund his campaign for president. If Chris Clown did run for president, the EWGOPPM would run ads reminding the masses of the Bridgegate scandal, among other gems.
He’s worming his way out of the presidential race by telling a lie. The masses are already on to him.
