Quinnipiac: Corzine’s approvals inch up before accident

Gov. Jon Corzine's automobile accident has had little effect on his popularity in New Jersey, which has improved because of his propery tax reduction plan, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released this morning. Corzine's approval rating is at 51%-36%, his best showing since taking office in January 2006.

He was at 51%-36% among 800 voters polled before his accident (April 10-12), and at 52%-35% among the 500 surveyed after extensive media coverage of his injuries (April 12-16).

Corzine was at 50%-34% in a February 28 Quinnipiac poll.
