The 2016 impact on New Jersey

Even though Gov. Chris Christie has yet to announce a run for president in 2016, most New Jerseyans believe that he will, and that it’s affecting his decisions on state issues.

The latest Rutgers-Eagleton poll finds that 57 percent expect Christie to run for the White House, while 48 percent believe the potential candidacy is impacting what bills he signs or vetoes.

The poll also shows that he gets failing grades for his handling of taxes, the budget and pensions.

Christie’s current overall job approval rating stands at 52 percent, which is down slightly from April.

The governor is on the road again today, stumping for Gov. Paul Lepage (R-ME) in Maine.

Christie is set to headline several fundraisers for the Maine Republican Party and the GOP governor, who is seeking a second term.
