While Most NJ Republicans Stand by Christie, Democrats Abandon Him

Posted at 12:01 am January 22, 2014, in Governor Chris Christie, Rutgers-Eagleton Poll, Spring 2014

Following a second week of revelations about “Bridgegate,” Gov. Chris Christie’s job approval and favorability ratings have dropped dramatically among New Jerseyans, with Democrats driving the decline, according to a new Rutgers-Eagleton Poll. Following more than a year of strong bipartisan support, Christie’s favorability rating is now 46 percent favorable to 43 percent unfavorable, down from 65 percent favorable just before his landslide re-election. This drop in support is led by a 26-point decline among Democrats.
