STATE – Gov. Chris Christie still has the support of 51 percent of New Jersey residents, though his approval rating among registered voters has slipped slightly according to the latest Monmouth University/NJ Press Media Poll.
Christie’s approval rating stands at 50 percent among registered voters, down five points from February. Men think more highly of Christie than women; 59 percent of men approve of the governor while 28 percent disapprove. Among women, approval stands at 43 percent and disapproval at 42 percent.
“Gov. Christie’s overall rating remains positive, so I’m not ready to say his ratings are slipping,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. “But this poll indicates that the political sands are shifting. He has skillfully navigated those shifts in the past. We’ll be following these numbers to see if he can continue the positive track in public opinion he has maintained for the past year.”
The Monmouth University/NJ Press Media Poll was conducted by telephone with 804 New Jersey adults from April 11 to 15. This sample has a margin of error of + 3.5 percent. The poll was conducted by the Monmouth University Polling Institute and originally published by the New Jersey Press Media newspaper group (Asbury Park Press, Courier-Post, Courier News, Daily Journal, Daily Record, and Home News Tribune).
