  • WNYC Radio: Rooney handicaps hypothetical Christie vs. Clinton matchup

    By The Staff | The Save Jersey Blog Our Blogger-in-Chief Matt Rooney joined WNYC Radio‘s David Furst on this week’s edition of the Christie Tracker Podcast, Save Jerseyans. The topic? A Christie vs. Clinton 2016 presidential matchup that some no longer think is likely (based on the latest polling) but which, as Matt points out, would be […]


  • Is Ted Cruz on your short list?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Would I consider voting for Ted Cruz, Save Jerseyans? You bet. At this stage in GOP history, we can’t rule out anyone willing to fight. They’re rare as you’re ALL too well aware. Yet despite having a strong, vocal following outside of his home base of Texas, […]


  • NH GOP Focus Group: “Mixed” on Chris Christie

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Especially considering how the early primary/caucus states are very retail politics-intensive, Save Jerseyans, I’m inclined to think voter focus groups are no less insightful (maybe more so?) than the pre-debate season polls. Watch, and then let me know what you think:


  • NEW POLL: Christie has a mountain to climb in Colorado

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Gov. Walker is far out in front at 33% in the Centennial State, Save Jerseyans. Chris Christie? At the back of the pack at 3%. That’s what a new Voter Gravity poll of 8,296 Colorado voters discovered. This key Western swing state’s caucuses are an early and critical test in the […]


  • POLL: How will Bridgegate wrap up?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog On Friday night, Save Jerseyans, the Wall Street Journal cited sources familiar with the federal investigation and reported that last January’s Bridgegate scandal is finally coming to a head in the next few weeks. This wouldn’t be the first false alarm. Back in December, after preemptively exonerating Governor Chris […]


  • Pro-Christie Super PAC launches

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Polls be damned, Save Jerseyans. Chris Christie is still in it to win it. Or at least one of his allies is acting like it. On Thursday, former Republican Governors Association (RGA) executive director Phil Cox has launched a pro-Christie Super PAC titled “America Leads.”  You can check out the […]


  • POLLING: Christie far back in the Carolinas

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog This is undoubtedly the winter of Chris Christie’s discontent, Save Jerseyans. Dixie fails to present as an exception. He registered only 2.8% last weekend in the CPAC straw poll, behind the likes of Donald Trump and Rick Santorum; more concerning, the latest poll out of North Carolina (a critical […]


  • Barely registering in Iowa, Christie heads to CPAC (then Cali)

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog 4%. That’s where Governor Chris Christie stands in Iowa today according to the results of a new Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday. His favorability rating there is upside down, 30 – 54 percent, despite his having visited the state a number of times, most recently back in January at the […]


  • PPP Poll: Christie now tied with Ted Cruz

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Not great news for Governor Christie in the polling department following Tuesday’s unconventional budget address, Save Jerseyans. A PPP (D) national GOP primary poll found that “Chris Christie just keeps on becoming more and more unpopular with Republican voters. Only 28% rate him favorably to 45% who have […]


  • One year out, Christie running 4th in New Hampshire

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We’re exactly one year out from the February 9, 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary, Save Jerseyans, and the latest Saint Anselm/Bloomberg Politics New Hampshire poll has Jeb Bush on top sans Mitt Romney: Jeb Bush (16%) Rand Paul (13%) Scott Walker (12%) Chris Christie (10%) Mike Huckabee (6%) […]


  • Two new polls: Walker leads in New Hampshire

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The latest, Save Jerseyans: Poll #1, from Gravis Marketing, shows Scott Walker in first place at 23%, followed by Jeb Bush (16%), Chris Christie (12%) and Rand Paul (11%). Gov. Christie actually loses to “unsure” by 2-points (14% to 12%). “Walker has a national reputation and when […]


  • Disaster? No, but Chris Christie needs to come home. Now.

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog This is one instance where I’m not at all happy about being right. The media is already calling Governor Chris Christie’s trip to the U.K. a “disaster,” Save Jerseyans (Mark Bonamo says the wheels are off the cart), primarily after a vaccination flap distracted everyone from the […]


  • Christie’s path to the presidency (still) runs through New Jersey

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It’s not news that Governor Chris Christie isn’t where he’ll need to be one year from when the first GOP presidential primary voters are cast, Save Jerseyans. 8th place in South Carolina. 6th nationally. You’ve seen the results by now. Perhaps the only “news” of late is the […]
