STATE – New Jersey voters continue to support Gov. Chris Christie, according to the results of a new statewide poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind™.
The governor’s approval rating is at 49 percent, with 39 percent of voters disapproving.
Sixty percent of voters believe that the state should hold the line on spending even if it means cutting programs, while only 22 percent believe that New Jersey should raise taxes to maintain funding.
“Deep cuts in public budgets and a popular governor don’t usually go together,” said Peter Woolley, a political scientist and director of the poll. “New Jersey voters are living in interesting times.”
The poll of 804 registered voters was conducted by telephone from Nov. 15, 2010, through Nov. 21, and has a margin of error of +/-3.5 percentage points.
