NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A poll released Friday morning indicated that New Jersey residents have soured on Gov. Chris Christie, with just 37 percent of registered voters saying they think favorably of him.
The Rutgers-Eagleton poll came out as Christie was trying to build a following among national Republicans in the interest of a possible run for president in 2016. But the poll indicated that a series of less-than-flattering headlines have done a number on the number of New Jersey voters who think of Christie favorably.
A clear majority, 53 percent, thinks unfavorably of Christie for the first time, according to the poll.
“I think he’s done things that no one else could do … He made me a Democrat,” one person told CBS2’s Marcia Kramer.
