Christie's Approval at All Time Low, Reveals Recent Poll

Last Edited:

Though he is not on the ballot this Election Day, a new survey shows Republican Governor Chris Christie may have trouble getting re-elected in the future.

The latest Rutgers-Eagleton poll revealed Christie's favorability and job approval ratings are at record lows. The poll showed a record low of 19 percent of participants have a favorable view of Christie, that's down four points from six weeks ago.

The week-long survey ended a day before the jury delivered guilty verdicts in the George Washington Bridge lane closure trial.

Former Christie aide Bridget Kelly and Bridge Authority Executive Bill Baroni were found guilty on all counts. Christie denies wrongdoing and wasn't charged in the 2013 scheme.

The poll also found the governor's job approval rating slipped six points to 20 percent, compared with six weeks ago.
