Christie: The Media Made My Poll Numbers Go So Low

April 28, 2015 6:36 a.m.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), a potential presidential candidate in 2016, on Monday placed blame on the media for his low approval ratings.

During an interview with NJ101.5 radio’s “Ask the Governor,” Christie dismissed the hit he has taken in the polls since the Bridgegate scandal broke.

“If you’re going to have relentlessly negative coverage from the media, it’s going to affect your poll numbers,” Christie said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Christie’s approval ratings sunk to the lowest of any governor this year in an April Quinnipiac poll. Fifty-six percent of New Jersey voters said they disapproved of the job Christie is doing, while just 38 percent said they approved.
