A new poll from Monmouth University shows support for Governor Chris Christie has fallen to 15 percent, while 80 percent disapprove of his job performance. That’s down from the 27 percent approval rating Christie had when Monmouth University last polled voters in May 2016.
"In reality, Christie may have found the floor for his ratings, but it's a level where most of his constituents now feel his time on office has hurt the state." said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.
Even Christie’s own party doesn’t like the job he’s doing, as his approval rating among Republicans is 30 percent. Overall, 55 percent of state voters believe the state is worse off because of his time as governor.
Two thirds of respondents also reacted negatively to a picture showing Governor Christie on the beach during a state government shutdown. Asked to describe the picture, 7 percent used the word “disgusted” while another 7 percent used the term “anger.” Another 6 percent also used a form of profanity to express their displeasure.
"This is New Jerseyans telling it like it is, but the governor has said that he basically doesn't care what they think,” said Murray.
