Christie’s grade is up in new poll on N.J. voters

    A new poll finds New Jersey voters think Gov. Chris Christie is doing a good job, but they’re not positive about re-electing him.

    In a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released today, 47 percent of voters rate his performance an “A” or “B” — the best marks they’ve given him since the poll began asking the question in February 2011.

    Still, nearly one in three voters gave the Republican a “D” or “F.”

    Forty-four percent said they would re-elect him and 47 percent said they wouldn’t — a result within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

    Christie has not said whether he will seek re-election next year.

    The telephone survey of 790 registered voters was conducted from Sept. 27-30.
