New Jersey voters don't believe Jon Corzine's campaign is deliberately seeking to make a campaign issue out of Christopher Christie's weight, according to a Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll. Nearly half of the state's likely voters, 47%, say Corzine has not tried to drive the weight issue, while 35% believe he has. More than eight out of ten voters (81%) say Christie's weight is not a legitimate issue, while 11% say it is. Among likely voters, 4% say Christie's weight makes them more likely to vote for him, 19% say less likely, and 78% say it makes no difference. PPP is a Democratic polling firm based out of North Carolina.
"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
