Chris Christie insists he's not a bully and it appears a majority of New Jersey voters agree. In a new poll by Quinnipiac University , 54% of New Jersey voters describe their governor as a "leader," compared with 40% who say the Republican is a "bully." During a nearly two-hour news conference last week in which he apologized for the scandal, Christie stressed that he's "not a focus-group tested, blow-dried candidate or governor" and that his sometimes blunt, in-your-face style has made some people uncomfortable since he took first took office in 2010.
