Yes you should vote for Chris Christie on Tuesday. It is our only hope to rid the state of the economy killing, private job shrinking, and government expanding Governor Jon Corzine. Look I get that Christie hasn't explained how he is going to cut property taxes, restore rebates, and slow down the growth of government. I get that I really do. I also get that if you are a conservative he has pissed you off going back to the primary against Lonegan. However....
- The polls are tightening and Corzine can still win this
- Chris Daggett is finished. He is not surging in the polls. Perhaps if he started earlier and used online effectively instead of listening to their traditional media agency (see the quote* below from Ali of the Daggett Campaign on why they didn't have any online strategy) he'd have a chance, but he listened to the wrong advisors.
- Google Trends right now is pointing to a toss up but Corzine isn't far behind; Daggett is finished
- Obama is extending his influence in the race even though he knows that Corzine has done a terrible job with this state in creating jobs and spurring the economy.
4 more years of Corzine is a horrible thought. And for each of you saying to yourselves, well if we have Corzine again at least next time we can run a conservative candidate. That's the wrong kind of thinking that led some of you conservatives to not vote for Senator McCain - and look how that has turned out.
If you are on the fence, vote Christie. If you are a conservative, hold your nose and vote Christie. If you want to make a protest vote for Daggett, now is the wrong election for a protest vote; the only thing that matters right now is to ditch Corzine and Christie is the only vote that can do it.
Sorry true believers. The way I look at this vote is to get rid of Corzine first and the only way to do that is to vote Chris Christie.
(Disclosure: I have had ABSOLUTELY NO INVOLVEMENT with the Christie Campaign. In fact, my 9 year old son still asks me why would I vote for him if he didn't hire me. Answer: CHRISTIE IS THE ONLY CHANCE TO GET RID OF JON CORZINE)
*Here's the bizarre, campaign strategy killing decision by the Daggett campaign to NOT use online to network, advertise, and generate grass roots support as posted by Ali from the Daggett Campaign (BOLD is done by me).
"From our research, we have discovered that NJ voters are primarily reachable via TV and other media -- not internet -- and that is why we have focused our efforts where we have. I can imagine you have strong opinions as to how we should be using our money, but actually the media company who has led every successful independent in this country is spearheading our efforts, so we are deferring to the experts."
