McGreevey to Corzine: Thanks for making me look good!
The first 100 days of Governor Jon Corzine's administration is over and its 100 days he'd soon forget. A new Quinnipiac University poll released today shows Corzine with a dismal 35% approval rating and a 42% disapproval. When asked specifically about his handling of the budget, his numbers become 31-46%.
Even Jim McGreevey -- New Jersey's biggest governor-failure -- had better approval ratings in the same time period of his scandal-plagued shortened term (April 24, 2002): 40% approval, 32 disapproval (sidebar story).
Who would have thought 100 days ago that McGreevey would be considered a success when compared to Corzine?
