Chris Christie’s Approval Rating Hits All-Time High [AUDIO]

Since Superstorm Sandy pummeled the Garden State, Governor Chris Christie’s job approval numbers have been sky-high. Even Christie acknowledges his ratings will come back down to Earth, but today’s Quinnipiac University poll shows his approvals are still in the stratosphere.

“Chris Christie has to love this new Quinnipiac University poll,” says survey director Mickey Carroll. “His job approval is the highest it’s ever been…..These are great, great numbers for Governor Christie. Job approval, 74% (approve) to 21% (disapprove). Even Democrats approve of his job 56%-37%.”

Christie’s approval is 93% – 4% among Republicans and 78% – 18% among independent voters. Men approve 79% – 18% while women approve 69% – 24%.

Carroll explains, “Overwhelming support for their Jersey Guy Gov from every group in every corner of the state translates into a sky-high approval rating matched only by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. 2016 – here we come!”

The poll also suggests Christie was right to criticize Congressional Republicans for delaying a vote on Hurricane Sandy relief, New Jersey voters say 79% – 15%, including 70% – 22% among Republicans.

Carroll says, “‘Give ’em hell, Chris!’ New Jersey voters say about Governor Christopher Christie’s attack on House Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans when they delayed the vote on super-storm Sandy relief.”

From January 15 – 21, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,647 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points. The poll includes 616 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points.
