'Bridgegate' Scandal Sinks Christie In NBC Presidential Election Poll

NBC shows former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads Gov. Chris Christie by 13 points in 2016 presidential election survey

Gov. Chris Christie may still be popular in New Jersey, but the "Bridgegate" scandal appears to have eroded the nation's faith in his leadership.

An NBC-Marist poll that showed a neck-and-neck race a month ago now shows that Democrat Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and first lady, leading Christie, a Republican, by 13 points.

Neither potential candidate has declared their intentions yet, but polls show that both are considered the respective front-runners for the presidential nomination of their political parties.

NBC pointed out that a third of those surveyed believe Christie is lying about his role in the scheme to close Fort Lee lanes to the George Washington Bridge as a form of political retribution.

Thanks Andrew. I like to be informed so I just read the wikipedia post. Seems the General never saw the WMD but was told that they were flown by other pilots, who by the way, never were found or told their own story to confirm. This is merely the General relaying a story. And who did he tell this story to? Fox News. The Conspiracy Network 24/7. The Space Shuttle theory is more plausible.

Perhaps if the next survey is not taken in NJ's numerous Democratic controlled slum cities, the result will be a whole lot different.

thats so stupid..its a poll and who cares..things will be forgotten and he can move on from this..please- look at others who were guilty of far worse and no one speaks of it today...

@common sense…Thank you, it’s nice to know not everyone believes Brush Lintballs Oxycodone induced verbal vomit!

Yes NBC Marist who predicted a 20%+ margin for Obama in 2012...and then he won using the "dead"vote and voter fraud by a ridiculously small margin. Why would I not believe their poll? Idiots.
common sense January 17, 2014 at 11:34 PM
Paul..I thought your recent post was 'interesting' so I just researched all the NBC/Marist polls from may 2012 to the election and guess what? Obama and Romney were NEVER more than 3 points apart at ANY time in their polling. I guess when people say "you can't make this crap up" well some people can Paul. 'Dead' and voter fraud won this election? You MUST be a failed fiction writer by profession. Keep it up though. Us voters just keep getting pushed further left every day by 'cartoon' characters like you.
Paul Pallante January 18, 2014 at 12:07 AM
Use your real name and maybe I'd dignify you with an answer.
Bob Vey January 18, 2014 at 06:35 AM
Clay Thomas: It's been proven that the WMD's were in fact moved to Syria !!!! That is why the U.S. didn't find them!!!! Why didn't the so-called "news media" make such a "big deal" over four (4) Americans being MURDERED in Benghazi???!!! Why wasn't there any kind of investigation into the MURDERS at all???!!! I 'll tell you why. Because O is the Pres. and Hill. was the Sec. of State!!!! That's why!!!! In 2016 Hill. is going to run for Pres. It's called a "COVER-UP"!!!! Now because of a traffic jam that lasted 4 days, they want to Ruin Christie's chances of running for Pres. in 2016 If Benghazi happened under any other Pres. except for O & Clinton they would have been Crucified in the so-called "news media", there would have been a Congressional Investigation & They would have been Impeached or forced to Resign!!!!

CJV, like the rest of the Libtards would elect Hitler if he ran as a Dumbocrat.
Davie January 18, 2014 at 04:04 PM
When he does good things he gets rave reviews, when he is implicated in such a controversy people begin to wonder about him as a person.
Joe R January 18, 2014 at 04:45 PM
What a jackarse comment by jughead. Hitler hated liberals and liberalism with a passion, much like jughead.
CJV January 18, 2014 at 06:11 PM
Vincent, I admonish you the same way Dean Wormer admonished Flounder.

Republicans/Conservatives/Bags = Useful Idiots.

NBC is a nest of liberalism. Can't take their word for anything. Liberalism is a disease.
Joe R January 19, 2014 at 09:27 AM
NBC is liberal only if you are a far right wing Fox Noise drone. I wish NBC were liberal but it's just a tool of the corporate elites. It's just there to air commercials and mostly pap and happy talk.
common sense January 19, 2014 at 09:48 AM
Mr Marshall.. according to The Encylcopedia Brittanica and wikipedia, 'liberalism' is defined as "a political philosophy based on ideas of liberty & equality which support ideas of free & fair elections, civil rights, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free trade & private property". Based upon that definition, I would only hope that my children and grandchildren always considered themselves 'LIBERALS'. If it is a 'disease' as you say, thank God I have it.

get ready folks almost time to SLAUGHTER the libtards
Joe R January 19, 2014 at 10:26 AM
"..SLAUGHTER the libtards.." That sounds like a comment from Hitler, Mussolini, Franco or Pinochet. By the way, William F. Buckley was a big fan of Francisco Franco and Pinochet, both bloody dictators.
Wallst January 19, 2014 at 10:34 AM
Common Sense, you are 100% correct. Conservatives, as uneducated as they are, could never comprehend.
George Murphy January 20, 2014 at 01:25 AM
Lately, and after reading here, I am coming to the conclusion (and at an alarming rate) that we have become a divided culture, and possibly even a divided nation. The density of the stupidity weighs a little heavier to the left, however. Jesus said, "Wisdom is proved right by her actions."
George Murphy January 20, 2014 at 01:53 AM
NBC (Nothing But Communism) is the worst of all of the major networks of nit wits. And, besides the eyebrow-less Jay Carney, we are subjected to the likes of upChuck Todd, to whom many of our comatose American populous have subscribed. Question: When will "intelligent life" begin to think for itself???
Wallst January 20, 2014 at 01:54 AM
You just stick with Fox News, George Murphy, so you can stay just as uninformed as you are now. LOL!
George Murphy January 20, 2014 at 02:02 AM
Well now, I don't watch Fox News, so how's 'bout that? I am not brain dead like the majority of folks who are addicted to TV. Sir, you say uninformed, right? Perhaps so, but certainly not clueless.
CJV January 20, 2014 at 03:44 AM
Anyone who would refer to a President who has codified the Republican Police State, given $1 trillion to Republican banks at 0% interest, done nothing to keep our largest companies from claiming they are based in the Caribbean or Ireland to avoid paying taxes, anyone who would call that "Communist" is so mind-numbingly ignorant I wouldn't let them drive my child's school bus let alone have any position of responsibility.
CJV January 20, 2014 at 03:46 AM
Bloomberg.com recently did a series on how the billionaires are paying ZERO taxes in this country now after 6 years of Obama, detailing how it is done. You trailer-trash Republicans are too stupid to realize FoxNews is pulling your strings. The people who write the scripts that are faxed to Fox each day are paying no taxes. But they dangle red meat in front of you and you eagerly take up their cause.
Wallst January 20, 2014 at 04:40 AM
Fox News = Saudi Owned, Mormon Managed
George Murphy January 20, 2014 at 06:03 AM
CJV - We have a responsibility to one another to keep this forum open and decent. Perhaps that is one thing (out of a number), which you may have trouble understanding. I am smart, decent and educated, and, I have friends that live in trailer parks, who would not appreciate your remarks. Now, I am not sure what you mean regarding the school bus thing, but perhaps your child is in a more precarious setting living with you, your views and your apparent anger issues, than he or she would be on an average school bus. I made it very clear that I do not view any TV networks. Instead, I keep a clear head with a close spiritual walk. In other words, I get my information from a Real source, not Sean Hannity.
Susan January 20, 2014 at 06:27 AM
Bob Vey, then why did we not hear all the same noise over the 12 attacks on Diplomatic installations, by terrorists, resulting in many deaths, during the Bush administration? I suspect that if Hillary Clinton declined to run for president, we wouldn't hear much about Benghazi again. It's all politics. But in the meantime, what's going on behind the scenes that were NOT hearing about?
CJV January 20, 2014 at 07:08 AM
By the way, regarding the poll, the hacks at Quinnipac continue to claim otherwise. Q are famous for bizarre poll outcomes that claim close races where there are none, likely a bald effort by them to increase campaign spending on further polls.
CJV January 20, 2014 at 07:10 AM
George, you said nothing to Vincent, whom I am responding to. Untili you do, I shant give a flip what you say.
