Poll: Christie Lacks Support In New Jersey For Presidential Run

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (CBSNewYork)New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been making more and more appearances out of state as speculation grows that he is planning to launch a bid for the White House. But a new poll says most voters in his own state don’t believe he’s presidential material.

A Monmouth University Poll released Wednesday found that in a hypothetical matchup, Christie trails Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton 53 percent to 30 percent among New Jersey voters. Garden State voters also said they believe former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, both Republicans, would make better presidents than Christie.

The views on Christie have taken a hit over the past three months, when the poll found that Christie and Bush were in a dead heat and the New Jersey governor held an eight-point advantage over Walker.

“The message from New Jersey voters seems to be as simple as ABC — anybody but Christie,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

New Jersey Republicans prefer Christie over Bush, but not over Walker.

Two-thirds of those surveyed said they don’t believe Christie has the right temperment to lead the country, and 47 percent said they think their governor hurts New Jersey’s image around the country.

Only one in four New Jerseyans gave Christie a decent shot at winning the GOP nomination — and only 7 percent believe he can win the general election.

Seventy percent of Garden State voters said they think Christie is more concerned with his own political future than with governing the state.

“The state’s presidential preferences may stem from public resentment that governing New Jersey has become an afterthought for Christie,” said Murray.

Self-moistening chest strap could be used for multi-day ECGs

Empa's heart rate-monitoring chest strap

In order to conduct electrical signals from the skin, the electrodes on heart rate monitors need to be slightly moist. That’s why gel is first applied to patients’ skin. Unfortunately, that gel dries up within 24 hours. Now, however, scientists from Switzerland’s Empa research institute are developing a solution – a self-moistening heart rate-monitoring chest strap, for use in situations where electrocardiograms (ECGs) need to be recorded over a period of several days.

Compiling a ‘dentist’s handbook’ for penis worms

A new study of teeth belonging to a particularly phallic-looking creature has led to the compilation of a prehistoric ‘dentist’s handbook’ which may aid in the identification of previously unrecognised specimens from the Cambrian period, 500 million years ago. The carnivorous Penis Worm, or Ottoia, known from 500-million-year-old fossils, was a fearsome beast: it could turn its mouth inside out to reveal a tooth-lined throat that looked like a cheese grater.

Jon Jones’ Agent Says Fighter Shouldn’t Have Been Stripped of Title

A manager for former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones believes the organization was wrong to strip the fighter of his championship so quickly after an alleged hit-and-run crash last month.

Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting passed along comments made by Malki Kawa during an appearance on the The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani. He believes the company should have let the process play out before making such a major decision:

Jon Jones won that belt inside the Octagon. Nobody beat him for the belt. That’s just one case in itself. But on the other hand, we’re jumping to a lot of conclusions. We haven’t let things play out. He hasn’t had his day in court and I don’t think it’s OK to just hand punishments down like that. But I do definitely understand where the UFC, sponsors and everyone is coming from. I can totally understand.

He also pointed out the potential issues of trying to promote Daniel Cormier as champion should he defeat Anthony Johnson for the vacant title after losing to Jones in January.

“If you’re Daniel Cormier and you win this belt, right, and you go parading around the world and you’re this and you’re that, do you think anyone on the face of this Earth can actually take you serious?” Kawa said. “It would be such a joke at that point.”

Kawa noted Jones is now no longer sure whether he wants to continue his MMA career once the situation is complete.

How long that will take is unknown. The Associated Press and Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reported Jones is facing a felony charge after reportedly striking the car of a pregnant woman, who had her arm broken in the crash, and then leaving the scene of the crime.

Obviously, there are a lot more questions than answers at this stage of the process. His status won’t become clear until the case is settled.

A manager coming out in support of a client doesn’t come as a surprise. The UFC was forced to make a quick judgment after the incident grabbed headlines. It decided an indefinite suspension and stripping him of the title was the way to go.
