CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer blindsided a presidential contender with some harsh polling news on Wednesday.
Blitzer during an interview with former New Jersey Governor and presidential candidate Chris Christie on The Situation Room the CNN anchor asked about a recent New Hampshire poll.
“I want to get your reaction to this new New Hampshire primary poll,” said Blitzer. “Take a look at these numbers.”
Blitzer pointed out, “You have a 10% favorable rating in this New Hampshire Granite State poll. 21% neutral. 64% say it’s unfavorable towards you,” before adding, “That’s not very encouraging, is it?”
Well I haven’t seen the poll. This is the first I’ve seen of it, haven’t heard about it, but look, when you’re out there telling the truth, Wolf, and you are pushing hard against the former incumbent president, in the beginning that’s going to be a hard road. That’s going to be uphill to do, but it needs to be done because our primary voters deserve two things. They deserve the truth, they haven’t gotten it from Joe Biden, they haven’t gotten it from Donald Trump. They will get it from me. Secondly, they deserve action on the issues that they care about, and neither Joe Biden or Donald Trump have given them that either.
“I saw a poll in New Hampshire two days ago that showed me half a point behind Ron DeSantis in third place,” he told Blitzer. “So I don’t know what those numbers are all about, but I’ll pick the poll I like, and I like that one that shows me only half a point behind DeSantis.”
According to RealClearPolitics’ poll average, Christie is the seventh most popular Republican presidential candidate across the US at just 2.4%.
