    Maybe it is in some circles. I haven't thought/heard about it since when it first came out. It seemed pretty childish of him, if it were true, but it was never a big story on my plate. I guess I can't speak for all democrats, though.

    It showed up in the polls in election match ups between him and Clinton

    December 2013 polls
    CNN/Opinion Research 12/16 - 12/19 Clinton 46 Christie 48
    PPP (D) 12/12 - 12/15 Clinton 42 Christie 45
    Quinnipiac 12/3 - 12/9 Clinton 41 Christie 42

    After Bridgegate January/February 2014

    McClatchy/Marist 2/4 - 2/9 Clinton 58 Christie 37
    CNN/Opinion Research 1/31 - 2/2 Clinton 55 Christie 39
    ABC News/Wash Post 1/20 - 1/23 Clinton 53 Christie 41

    Today RCP averages shows Clinton 47.0% to Christie 39.5%

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - General Election: Christie vs. Clinton

    So bridgegate hurt him.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Ah, that sucks. Kind of like what's his name from before with the "HIYAAAAAAAAA" phrase. It doesn't take much of substance to knock someone down in the polls.

    I was going to post a very similar thing. The protestors in NYC shut down the West Side Highway, and they're cool. They shut down highways in MO, shut down roads in the center of Boston, shut down roads in NYC...but that's okay! Road shutdowns are only nasty, filthy things when the Republican governor of NJ's allies are behind it.

    No it doesn't. Traffic and lane closures are something the average Joe can relate to big time. Much more so than some other obscure scandal that we on DP like to delve into. Knocking Christie down as the Democrats did was just good politics on their part. He was the only one, Republican potential candidate that was not trailing by double digits. In fact he had taken the lead.

    Still there is plenty of time left for Christie to recoup if he still does want to run for the presidency. But you can be sure there will be tons of campaign ads still accusing him of wrong doing with the lane closures if he does. This found innocent or not guilty depending on one's partisan point of view will receive little play in the media leaving most of the average Americans still thinking he may have had something to do with it.

    When Republicans are allegedly behind it.
