NJ Voters: Governor More Scrooge Than Santa

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — They could call him Gov. Scrooge.

A new poll from Quinnipiac University finds New Jersey voters think Gov. Chris Christie is more like Scrooge than Santa by a 54 to 28 margin.

Republicans saw him as Santa-like, 47 to 36.

Democrats and unaffiliated voters overwhelmingly found the Republican governor to resemble Charles Dickens’ bah-humbugging character.

Not everyone seems to mind that the governor is a bit Scrooge-like.

In another Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday, voters were almost evenly divided on whether they approve of Christie’s performance.

The poll surveyed 1,276 New Jersey voters between Dec. 14 and Dec. 19. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

    Since when do we want our elected officials to be Santa Claus?

    You think Christie is tough? Those elves have no benefits, pension, savings plan… in fact they are closer to slave labor.

    But what else do you expect from a guy who gives everyone presents regardless of income or social class. And that bright red suit? No coincidence. Santa is a slave-owning commie.

    Before anyone seriously responds.. Please.. I am just making fun of the ludicrousness of a story about whether NJ’s governor is more Scrooge than Santa. Really?
