TRENTON, NJ (CBS) – The majority of New Jersey voters don’t think Governor Christie is doing a good job, and they also think he knew about the George Washington Bridge traffic jam, or “Bridgegate,” but did not personally order it.
That’s the takeaway from a new Quinnipiac University poll conducted the second week of April.READ MORE: Feltonville Corner Store Owner Shoots Suspect During Attempted Robbery, Police Say
According to that survey, 53 percent of those polled say Christie was aware of the historic traffic jam, but 57 percent say he did not order it.
And, if it turns out Christie had knowledge his aides were ordering Bridgegate or ordered it himself, 34 percent say he should be removed from office and 29 percent would want him removed and prosecuted.READ MORE: New York City Announces First-In-The-Nation Vaccine Mandate For Private Companies
