When Mehmet Oz lost his race in Pennsylvania, it wasn’t a big surprise to democrats. That’s because Mehmet Oz was one of the worst candidates Republicans had ever put up for office, and voters responded accordingly.
When a candidate runs for office, it’s essential that he or she be a “good fit” for their state. Mehmet Oz was a terrible fit for Pennsylvania. So John Fetterman won, and Oz proceeded to scuttle away. So the question remains will Oz run again in another state? Perhaps he could run in New Jersey, where he actually lives.
Only that won’t be easy for him. Because there is new polling out and if it to be believed, New Jersey residents hate Mehmet Oz more than Pennsylvanians did. What else would we expect from the state of Bruce Springsteen? Way to go, New Jersey! In a Monmouth University poll, Garden-Staters were asked about a possible Oz candidacy. The answer is undeniable. No way.
Just 24 percent of respondents said an Oz run would be OK with them. Ouch! We knew Mehmet was unpopular, but this is really the bottom of the barrel. So what does this all tell us? I think it tells us that Mehmet Oz should perhaps not have quit his day job. He isn’t wanted as a politician — not by Pennsylvania, not by New Jersey, not by anyone.
