FDU Public Mind Poll: Christie transcending partisanship in a Democratic leaning state

Governor Chris Christie continues to enjoy sky high approval ratings among New Jersey voters and is heavily favored to be reelected in November, according to a Farleigh Dickinson University Public Mind Poll released this morning.

66% of New Jersey voters, including 55% of Democrats and 61% of Independents approve of the governor’s job performance.  If the election were held today, Christie would defeat presumptive Democratic nominee Barbara Buono by 58%-22% with 20% unsure. Christie would garner 36% of the Democratic vote.

48% say they like the Christie personally and like his policies. 18% like him, but not his policies. 12% don’t like the man, but like his policies and 17% don’t like him or his policies.  5% are comatose and were awakened by the pollster’s phone call.

  1. Sure would like to see said at 2:12 pm on March 12th, 2013:

    some polling on the legislature: is there any coat-tail effect of the Gov.? I suspect not. Do most voters in NJ even know they have two houses of the state legislature, what they do to us there, and who their own representatives are? More likely, not..Or, do they have any opinion on who ought to be serving them there? Most likely, not! All the time, money and angst we will endure before the Nov. election will probably result in all incumbents in all offices winning, and status quo, all around! Yawn..
