"Jeb Bush was supposed to take the stage with the aura of a favorite, but his poll numbers don't support that," said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. "The GOP electorate overall is lukewarm toward him, and the most conservative voters are even more negative."
"Christie's overwhelmingly positive ratings in the aftermath of Sandy have now been sliced in half," said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute. "Christie's ratings had stabilized after the initial Bridgegate revelations early last year. They started to erode again last fall, but these post-indictment numbers mark a significant acceleration in that decline."
