Chris Christie's 2014 is only getting worse and now it's pouring down onto the American people.

As "Bridgegate" continues to grip the nation and cause debate around the water-cooler, Chris Christie has attempted to deny any wrongdoing on his part. According to new poll by USA Today and the Pew Research Center, nearly 60 percent of Americans don't believe that Chris Christie had no knowledge about the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge while only 34 percent believe the scandal ridding governor.

While 67 percent of Democrats don't trust the governor, it's not just strictly partisan. Among Republicans, 42 percent don't believe that governor and 60 percent of Independents as well. In addition, Christie's unfavorable rating has doubled from last year at this time, from 17 percent in January of 2013 to its current rating of 34 percent.

Gov. Chris Christie was set to be sworn in at the War Memorial in Trenton, NJ, but due to weather issues, his inaugural party at Ellis Island was cancelled.
