TRENTON — After his stampedes on budget cuts and property tax caps, the payoff for Gov. Chris Christie is a bounce in his approval rating, according to a poll released today.
The Quinnipiac University survey of 1,190 registered voters found 51 percent approve of Christie’s job performance, while 36 percent disapprove. Voters are also more likely to identify Christie as a “leader” (51 percent) than as a “bully” (39 percent) when asked to choose.
It’s a significant improvement from June, when voters were split down the middle on both Christie’s approval rating and whether he’s more of a bully or a leader.
