“I am now ready to fight for the people of the United States of America,” Christie said at the gym of his former high school in Livingston, New Jersey. “I mean what I say, and I say what I mean, and that’s what America needs right now.”On the other hand talk is great, but I just cant see how he can get around the fact that the NJ economy is in the crapper. How its Standard & Poor ratings have been downgraded 3x since he became governor. Maybe there is a good explanation for that. His approval rating as a governor has fallen to 30% driven by Dems (17%) and Independents (23%). His approval rating was 77% after his reelection. Granted some of that loss was because he was unfairly blamed for "bridgegate." But his approval was in the 60% range most of last year after the scandal broke.
In other words the governor is a great retail candidate, but it will be very hard to get beyond his numbers in his own state.
