Just last November, Republican Chris Christie beat incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine to win the governor’s office in New Jersey, one of a handful of off-year elections that Republicans read as a repudiation of Obama and the Democratic Party.
I thought it was much more likely that voters were angry over the economy. And they’re now taking that anger out of Christie, whose approval rating is only 33 percent. That’s much lower than Obama’s approval rating, which still hovers near 50 percent:
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been in office for just three months, and a new eyewitness news poll shows voters are not giving him any kind of a honeymoon as he presses for budget cuts.
Only 33% of New Jersey residents approve the job Christie is doing as governor.
Nearly twice the number, 63% disapprove.
The telephone poll by SurveyUSA has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%.
