Consensus shows New Jersey voters consider Christie smart but stubborn

    Not that we really needed a poll to tell us this, but a study done by Rutgers-Eagleton confirms New Jersey voters think Gov. Chris Christie is stubborn. But, of the 773 voters polled, the majority also consider him smart, independent and a strong leader.


    Results from the poll were compared with a similar one taken in August, as reports. While stubborn rules the descriptives used for Christie, all positive and negative traits saw double digit increases in responses.

    But regardless of whether they approve of Christie, 49 percent of all voters polled said Christie makes them feel “worried,” while only 36 percent said he makes them feel “proud.”
