Poll: Majority give Christie thumbs up as governor

TRENTON, N.J. - A new poll shows a majority of voters still approve of the job Gov. Chris Christie is doing in New Jersey.

The Quinnipiac University poll shows Christie didn't get a bounce from his keynote speech at the Republican National Convention. But the first-term governor hardly needed it.

The poll finds 53 percent of voters approve of Christie's job performance, compared with 42 percent who disapprove. That's nearly identical to his score in a July poll.

Nearly two-thirds of men approve of Christie, while women are statistically split over whether the governor is doing a good job. Two-thirds of black voters disapprove.

The telephone survey of 1,560 registered voters took place from Aug. 27 to Sept. 2 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
