The other day Blue Jersey touched on the mis-reporting of the latest Quinnipiac poll, in terms of the Governor's popularity and the trend. Yes, the Governor still has high numbers, but I often wonder how the public would know any different if the media doesn't bother to report the full story for them to make an accurate judgment.
Anyway, Capitol Quickies looked past the top line numbers of the poll:
One of the interesting questions from this past week's Quinnipiac Poll was one in which people were asked: What one word best describes your impression of Christopher Christie?
It was an open-ended question, and every answer that was mentioned at least five times was then listed by Quinnipiac. 'Bully' ranked first, at 185 mentions out of the roughly 1,030 detailed. All told, 66 different answers were listed - 35 positive words, accounting for 49% of responses; 23 negative words, one of those profane, accounting for 43% of responses; and eight neutral or tough-to-assign words, accounting for 8% of responses.
They put up a word cloud to illustrate the responses:
If you want to know why bully and arrogant are so big, out of the 1,092 people who answered, a full 24% or 270 people identified him that way.
