Poll: Christie job approval dips but remains high

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A new poll shows Gov. Chris Christie still earns high marks among New Jersey voters, though the number who think he deserves a second term has slipped.

The Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press poll out Wednesday shows 59 percent think Christie should be re-elected in November, down 4 percentage points from a February poll.

A third of those surveyed say it's time for a new governor.

Christie's job approval rating is 65 percent, down 5 percentage points from February. Twenty-six percent disapprove of his performance, up 9 percentage points from February.

Christie's likely opponent, Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono (Bwoh-NO) has been campaigning that Christie's views are inconsistent with most New Jerseyans.

The telephone survey of 694 registered voters was conducted from April 11-14. It has an error margin of 3.7 percentage points.
