Bummer: Climate Crisis (scam) Drops To Bottom In NJ Governor’s Race

It’s like I keep saying: Doing Something about ‘climate change’ may be popular in theory, but, when push comes to shove, it’s not particularly important in Real Life. Poll after poll after poll confirms that when you stack it up against real world issues it comes in very low in terms of people’s actual concerns

What About Climate Change? NJ Voters Push Issue to Backseat in Governor’s Race

Taxes, economy, COVID, education, healthcare, abortion, immigration, and down the line you go before climate change pops up as the “one most important issue in this year’s election” for New Jersey voters polled recently.

Just 3 of 544 voters surveyed by the Stockton University Polling Institute marked it as their most important issue ahead of the Nov. 2 gubernatorial election in New Jersey. Incumbent Phil Murphy is seeking to become the first Democratic governor re-elected in the Garden State since 1977. He faces former state Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, a Republican.

Climate change placed 27th out of 31 issues offered as options for voters who took the Stockton survey.

Oops! People in NJ were most concerned with property taxes and general taxes. Things that are real, rather than Doom from bad weather which has always occurred.

Monmouth Poll Director Patrick Murray said climate change didn’t rank high in an August poll of voters in New Jersey and Virginia, the only two states with governor’s races this November.

“Back in August, we asked open-ended questions in both New Jersey and Virginia about voters’ most important issues. ‘Environment’ (which includes climate) was named by no more than 5% in either state,” Murray said in an email.

He added, “None of the candidates in either state are focusing their messages on climate change.”

It’s a shame that ‘climate change’ is included with questions on the environment, because the environment is important, and that question often does well when it doesn’t include ‘climate change’. Anyhow, ask people in theory, they’ll say it’s important (they’ll also tell you they don’t want to spend their own money on it or make changes to their own lives). Ask them when including things like the economy, taxes, healthcare, COVID now, and it drops to the end.

    Few gubernatorial races should hinge on global warming, and rightly so.

  2. Donkeys says:

    New Jersey just had a GOP governor and the leftists there could not stand it he did what they did so they had to create a crisis. Bridge closing.

    Democrats hate everything that is not in their own universe.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Christie (R-NJ) was term-limited and could not run in 2017 after serving two terms. He had also run for the Republican nominee for President in 2016 while NJ governor.

      Three of Governor Christie’s aides were convicted but the convictions were overturned by the Supreme Court saying:

      For no reason other than political payback, Baroni and Kelly used deception to reduce Fort Lee’s access lanes to the George Washington Bridge — and thereby jeopardized the safety of the town’s residents. But not every corrupt act by state or local officials is a federal crime.

      Christie’s aides were corrupt, just not “federally” corrupt.

      Phil Murphy (D-NJ) won in 2017 56 to 42%.

      • Wait Wut? says:

        Wait. Wut? You mean Christie was a publican in a democratic state and term-limited so they still went after him for closing a bridge for a few hours?

        Dang and here I thought the democrats were on the up and up.
