Question for news junkies regarding Chris Christie

Does the media ever mention that Christie split off the special election for Senator thus suppressing turn out. Seems to me that they make a big deal of his percentage of minority support, but not that the Booker vote would have eroded that support level.

2. I heard it once or twice on MSNBC,

(you know, the "liberal" network ), but only in passing and only before the election.

4. He also had the vote to raise the minimum wage on the ticket with his race, which is well known to

push up turn out. Although I heard it mentioned a couple of times, I never heard a commentator mention the standard impact on elections when minimum wage is included.
Looked like everyone was just supposed to be blown away by Christie's "big" win.

5. Have heard it on the msnbc a few times.

Only heard about the fact that only 38% of new jersey's voters turned out to vote one time. Some 'landslide' huh? lol
