Gov. Chris Christie has done it again — ratcheting up to historic levels the rate at which New Jersey voters disapprove of him. A, released yesterday, found that 81 percent of voters disapprove of him versus 15 percent who approve; it’s the worst approval rating for a governor in any state that Quinnipiac has surveyed in the past twenty years. Even 58 percent of voters in his own Republican Party give the governor a thumbs-down.
The poll also found that voters strongly disapprove of President Donald Trump — but he’s still not down in the Christie range (66 – 28 percent).
Voter approval of U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (58 – 28 percent) is markedly higher than that of his Senate colleague, Robert Menendez (44 – 35 percent). Another worrying number for Menendez is that 44 percent of voters say he does not deserve re-election next year versus 31 percent who say that he does.
