Gov. Christie’s Approval Numbers Drop
As Gov. Christie prepares for a likely 2016 presidential run, a new poll finds his approval rating in New Jersey has dropped to new lows.
A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll released today finds Gov. Christie's favorability rating has dropped to just 37 percent. That's a drop of seven points since December. The survey asked why voters think Christie's approval is dropping and twenty percent said it was due to his personality, fifteen percent mentioned the George Washington Bridge scandal, and ten percent said he's paying too much attention to running for president and not enough on the Garden State.
The poll of 694 registered voters has a margin of error of +/- 4.2 percentage points.
