New Jer­sey Gov. Chris Christie has em­barked upon a “Tell It Like It Is” tour of key states, host­ing town hall meet­ings, shak­ing hands, ad­mir­ing ba­bies and sneak­ing in some se­ri­ous pol­icy talk when he can. Some say the straight talk­ing gover­nor is a has-been on the na­tional scene. But not every­body.

“If Gov. Christie is re­ally out of 2016 con­tention, no one told 3 dozen re­porters who mobbed him to­day in New Hamp­shire,” tweeted Matt Katz, who cov­ers the Christie trail for public ra­dio in New York and New Jer­sey.

But alas, the Gar­den State cit­i­zenry is look­ing askance at their gover­nor. A new Rut­gers Uni­ver­sity poll re­leased Tues­day found that 69 per­cent say Mr. Christie would not make “a good pres­i­dent” while 58 per­cent say he doesn’t seem “pres­i­den­tial.” Forty four per­cent say the his chances or reach­ing the White House have wors­ened, 46 per­cent say they are about the same, but only 6 per­cent say they have im­proved.
