Poll: Majority Give Christie Thumbs Up as Governor

Poll: Majority Give Christie Thumbs Up as Governor
by
While RNC speech didn't bump numbers, poll shows Christie is popular among voters.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows Christie didn't get a bounce from delivering the 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 percent.
