Poll: Voters Find Gov. Christie ‘Stubborn’ But ‘Smart’

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP/WCBS 880) — In a new poll, New Jerseyans say Gov. Chris Christie is stubborn but smart and independent.

The Rutgers-Eagleton Poll out Thursday finds Christie’s favorability rating among registered voters is back up to February’s level of 46 percent. But his unfavorable rating has risen also, to 39 percent.

At the same time, a majority of voters — 58 percent — think the first-year Republican governor’s job performance has been only fair or poor.

Christie fared slightly better among men than women. Fifty-one percent of men feel favorable toward him compared to 42 percent of women.

The telephone survey of 751 New Jersey adults was taken Aug. 5-8 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
