That is what the people of New Jersey are saying about their Governor. A newly released FDU Public Mind Poll shows Corzine with a 49% disapproval rating and even more abysmal 56% unfavorability rating.
Chris Christies has a 9 point, 42-33 lead over Corzine, while Steve Lonegan clocks in at a statistical deadheat, 37-36.
Good news for Christie and Lonegan is that their name recognition increased from the last time this poll was issued one month ago and they were not hurt in the polls. You would expect a drop in a strong democratic state as more people know you are a Republican, but Corzine is so hated that typical impressions of Democrats and Republicans may not hold much sway with the voters in November.
