Poll: NJ gov sees highest approval ratings yet

TRENTON, N.J. - October 12, 2011

The Quinnipiac University Poll out Wednesday shows Christie with a 58 percent job approval rating - his highest ever in the poll.

And while a majority of voters polled think Christie could have won if he ran for president, they seem glad he didn't - they back his decision to stay put by a margin of 8-1.

Voters also agree with Christie by a 3-1 margin that he doesn't have the personality to be vice president.

Women are also warming to him; 51 percent approve of his performance, a 25-point swing from August.

The telephone poll of 1,186 registered voters was conducted from Oct. 5-10. It has an error margin of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
