New Jersey still can’t stand Chris Christie

‘Even President Trump fares better than Christie does in his home state,’ new poll says

By David Wildstein, April 09 2019 12:02 am

Fifteen months after leaving office, former Gov. Chris Christie remains wildly disliked among New Jerseyans.

Christie has upside-down favorables of 21%-63% in a new poll conducted jointly by Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics and Fairleigh Dickinson University.

“Chris Christie’s recent book tour has done little to help him with New Jerseyans, who still have a bitter taste in in their mouths from Christie’s last years as governor,” said Ashley Koning, assistant research professor and director of the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling  at Rutgers University– New Brunswick. “Even President Trump fares better than Christie does in his home state, both overall and among the party base – despite playing a notable part in the Republican governor’s unpopularity.”

The former two-term GOP governor even struggles among New Jersey Republicans, with approvals of 43%-41%.

Christie is at 17%-62% among independents and 14%-78% among Democrats.

The poll contacted 1,203 adults between March 7-22.  Of this sample, 621 were contacted on landlines and cellphones and 582 through an online probability-based panel.  The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.7%.
