    By The Staff | The Save Jersey Blog New Jersey voters disapprove of their Governor’s job performance by a 18-point margin, 56% to 38%, according to the results of a brand new Quinnipiac poll, Save Jerseyans.

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog These brand new results from a Stockton University survey – Understanding the United States Constitution and the Supreme Court: A Survey of New Jerseyans – may not shock you, Save Jerseyans, but they’re guaranteed to depress the heck out of you on the historic 150th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination (who we […]


  • POLL: Should Bob Menendez Resign?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog New Rutgers-Eagleton poll results suggest a slim majority of New Jerseyans are OK with Hudson Bob Menendez (D-Dominican Republic, Ecuador) staying put for now after getting smacked with a persuasive 16-count indictment, Save Jerseyans, but then again, this is the same polling outfit that needed to apologize […]

    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?

  • Is Ted Cruz on your short list?

Watch, and then let me know what you think:

    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.
