Christie sky high approval rating

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Gov. Chris Christie has shattered another public opinion poll record by scoring a 74 percent job approval rating, the highest of any governor in 17 years of Quinnipiac University surveys.

Respondents also overwhelmingly said the brash-talking Republican deserves re-election this year.

The poll released Wednesday shows Christie leading his likely Democratic challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono, by 37 percentage points. And 83 percent of respondents said they don't know enough about Buono to have an opinion about her.

Christie leads Buono among every demographic group except Democrats. He also holds a 50-percentage-point lead among independent voters.

The telephone survey of 1,149 registered voters was conducted from Feb. 13-17 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
