Just 3% would back Christie pick­ing self

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

New Jer­sey has de­cided that as much as they don’t want Sen. Bob Me­nen­dez re-elected even fewer would they like Gov. Chris Christie to re­place him, ac­cord­ing to a new poll.

A Quin­nip­iac Univer­sity sur­vey found only 3 per­cent of peo­ple polled would want Mr. Christie, a Repub­li­can, to ap­point him­self if Mr. Me­nen­dez re­signs from his seat, or is forced out. The two-term Demo­crat is cur­rently on trial on cor­rup­tion charges. Only 24 per­cent even want Mr. Christie to make the ap­point­ment.

Half of vot­ers say Mr. Me­nen­dez does not de­serve re-elec­tion next year with an­other 30 per­cent un­de­cided and 20 per­cent say­ing he should be re-elected. His ap­proval rat­ing is ex­pect­edly low at 31 per­cent, the low­est since 2008.
