Nearly Half of New Jersey Residents Would Vote Bruce Springsteen for Governor
Does New Jersey need a governor, or a Boss? According to a recent poll, many voters think the answer is both.
With New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s poll numbers dropping, an organization named Public Policy Polling decided to see what would happen if Bruce Springsteen ran against Christie for the office — and found that he’d enter with nearly half the popular vote.
Of course, Springsteen hasn’t said anything about running, and it’s hardly surprising that one of the state’s best-known celebrities (and, of late, most eloquent and outspoken political activists) would draw solid numbers, particularly during such a rancorous time for New Jersey politics. But the numbers — which put Springsteen neck-and-neck with Christie at 42 percent apiece — are still pretty impressive.
