Final Rutgers-Eagleton Poll on Christie is all bad news

Christie State much better off now than when he took office Trump considered running as Christie's vice president, insider book reveals

Supporters pressed Mr. Christie to run for president in 2012, but he instead endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

"Due to the fighting attitude we brought and the pro-growth policies we have fought for and achieved together, I am proud to be here today to tell you that the State of our State is very good and - without question - much better than it was eight years ago", Christie told a joint session of the Legislature during the late afternoon speech.

One of the other defining issues of Christie's tenure has been the state's pension system, a plan that he reworked in 2011, but that is now $90 billion underwater due to a lack of state funding. "The issues you're talking about are exciting", the governor said. But, for Christie, the last eight years have been a wild ride, one that has seen him rise to become one of the best-known national political figures and a presidential candidate.

"We have the nation's strongest limit on opioid prescriptions and since we implemented our new restrictions those prescriptions have decreased by over 15 percent", he said.

"We are still losing too many of our citizens to this disease, but we are now taking concrete steps to try turn back the tide of death and suffering", Christie said.

Christie also defended his record on taxes, and at one point declared he vetoed more proposed tax hikes than "any governor in American modern history". Like, OK, I've lost elections before, so I knew the sun came up the next day.

He was a bit more circumspect on the issue of the Sandy recovery, conceding the results "were not always ideal". "But I'll tell you what was ideal: the effort, the compassion and the focus".

In a state with a history of unpopular governors upon leaving office, Christie will end his second term as the most disapproved and disliked since Eagleton began surveying the public nearly five decades ago. Bridgegate delivered a blow to his reputation, followed by his failed presidential run.

Governer Chris Christie is expected to sign it into law, thus allowing the state Economic Development Authority to offer Amazon $10,000 in tax credits for every new job in New Jersey. Senate Democrats in turn repeatedly refused to confirm any of his Republican nominees to replace Wallace, though he eventually was able to have another Democrat, Walter Timpone, fill that seat.

"This did not have to be Gov. Christie's legacy", Ashley Koning, assistant research professor and director of the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, said in a prepared statement. "I have loved the job and I am so grateful to all the people of New Jersey for giving me the chance to serve the state where I was born and raised and where my four children were born and raised". Murphy will take the oath of office in Trenton on Tuesday and he will host an inaugural ball at MetLife Stadium later that evening.

Inaugural events for Governor-elect Phil Murphy will begin on Friday in Newark.
