Poll: Christie’s Overall Job Approval Rating At 51 Percent

christie A new poll gives Governor Christie high marks for holding the line on spending. The Fairleigh Dickinson / PublicMind poll out Tuesday has Christie’s overall job approval rating at 51 percent. That’s higher than it was in March when he laid out a budget that cut school aid, suspended property tax rebates and didn’t make a public workers’ pension fund contribution.

Thirty-seven percent disapprove of the job the Republican governor is doing.

Just after his budget speech, 43 percent approved of his handling of the job; 32 percent disapproved.

The telephone poll of 831 registered voters was conducted Oct. 4-10 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. AP

  1. I too am proud to be in the 49% who disapprove…..just wait, the groups in the 51% will get their turn. Eventually Christie TURNS on everyone and anyone….wouldn’t want to be his wife or family!

  2. THINK ABOUT THIS, HOW MANY DAYS HAS OUR NEW GOVERNOR BEEN TRAVELING TO OTHER STATES, CAMPAIGNING, FOR OTHER REPUBLICANS.?

    THE NEEDS OF NEW JERSEY ARE FAR AWAY FROM THE NEEDS YOU SEE FORTCOMING IN THE NOVEMBER ELECTION FOR YOUR REPUBLICAN FRIENDS.RATHER THAN THE PEOPLE OF NEW JERSEY. WHERE ARE THE JOBS?
