Does GWB Traffic Scandal Change Your Image of Christie?

Popular governor and potential presidential hopeful at center of brewing controversy.

Written By Jason Koestenblatt

Emails revealed Wednesday show one of Gov. Chris Christie's staff members allegedly conspired to purposely close traffic lanes in Fort Lee in September, causing major delays and safety issues in the town closest to the George Washington Bridge. 

The scandal has been snowballing since before the November election, and the attention coming from Wednesday's news has put a spotlight on the nationally-known governor. 

Some have said this could mar his walk to the White House in 2016—if he chooses to run, that is.

But what do you think of the "Bridgegate" scandal? Christie's direct involvement has not been concluded, and the governor has previously denied any participation. 

Tell us: Does the growing fracas change your thoughts on the governor? Do you think this will hamper a bid for the presidency in 2016 if he chooses to run?

Here in Ocean County, NJ's heartland of right-wingers, Christie's reputation has gone down in flames -- just like the Hindenburg. The local Patch's poll shows the prevailing sentiment is "I used to support him, but now fuhgeddaboudit." .............................Christie's White House dream is finished. Many are saying, "Put the bully out to pasture by impeaching him." Another NJ governor bites the dust!
