New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is still sporting a historic low approval rating following his venture to closed beaches.
Christie closed the beaches in response to a government shut down, then paraded with a few friends onto the sand.
Frankly, people disagreed with his decision.
Per PIX 11:
With a new poll showing voters are disgusted and outraged that Gov. Chris Christie sunned himself on a closed beach during a government shutdown last week, the term-limited governor auditioned for a sports talk radio job on Monday, brashly fighting back against angry callers.
Christie, a Republican, began co-hosting the afternoon show on New York’s WFAN shortly after the first poll released since Beachgate showed his approval rating holding steady at a dismal 15 percent, an all-time low. Eighty percent of respondents disapproved, the Monmouth University poll showed.
The pictures of Christie on the beach were widely disliked by those polled:
In the Monmouth poll, released Monday, 800 people were asked for the first word that came to mind to describe how they felt about Christie in the beach photos. Most said “disgusted” and “angry, outraged.” Tied for the next biggest share was “jerk, profanity used.”
Eighty-six percent of the respondents in the Monmouth poll said they saw the July 2 photos of Christie with his family on the closed beach.
