Bridgegate: Does GWB Traffic Scandal Change Your Image of Christie?

Popular governor and potential presidential hopeful at center of brewing controversy.

Governor Chris Christie speaks with reporters after voting in the November 2013 General Election.

Emails revealed Wednesday show one of Gov. Chris Christie's staff members allegedly conspired to purposely close traffic lanes in Fort Lee in September, causing major delays and safety issues in the town closest to the George Washington Bridge. 

The scandal has been snowballing since before the November election, and the attention coming from Wednesday's news has put a spotlight on the nationally-known governor. 

Some have said this could mar his walk to the White House in 2016—if he chooses to run, that is.

But what do you think of the "Bridgegate" scandal? Christie's direct involvement has not been concluded, and the governor has previously denied any participation. 

Tell us: Does the growing fracas change your thoughts on the governor, who was recently re-elected to a second term by a 20-point margin of victory over State Sen. Barbara Buono? Do you think this will hamper a bid for the presidency in 2016 if he chooses to run?

I wonder how many are thinking: "No - it confirms my opinion."
