Chris Christie’s Popularity Strong Among New Jersey Voters

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie’s popularity remains strong among New Jersey voters.

A Fairleigh Dickinson PublicMind poll out Tuesday finds 66 percent of registered voters surveyed think Christie is doing a good job, while 20 percent disapprove of his performance. The governor’s support covers the political spectrum — 83 percent of Republicans give Christie high marks, as do 55 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of independents.

The poll shows the Republican holds a 36-percentage-point-lead over state Sen. Barbara Buono, his likely Democratic opponent.

The telephone survey of 702 registered voters was conducted from March 4-10 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
