Christie job approval numbers remain high

A new poll released today shows Gov. Chris Christie’s popularity remains near its peak, as 56 percent of those polled have a favorable view of the governor.

The poll, conducted by the Philadelphia Inquirer, showed a full 59 percent of likely voters polled think the governor is doing a good job versus 36 percent who disapprove of his performance.

Half of those polled say the state is headed in the right direction against 32 percent who feel the state is headed down the wrong path. Though past polls show President Obama with a comfortable lead in New Jersey, 47 percent of residents say they are not convinced the country is moving in the right direction, versus 41 percent who say they are comfortable with the direction.

The poll was conducted Sept. 9 through 12 among 600 likely New Jersey voters in the November presidential election.  It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
