Poll: NJ voters view Christie as leader, not bully

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie’s approval rating and credibility remain strong among New Jersey voters surveyed in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

Sixty-six percent of the voters who have heard or read something about the George Washington Bridge lane closures say they believe Christie did not personally order the traffic jams. Even 53 percent of Democrats polled say they don’t believe Christie was involved.

Half say Christie’s aides acted alone while 41 percent say the governor knew what his aides were doing.

Voters approve of the job Christie is doing 55 to 38 percent, down from an all-time high of 74 percent in February 2013.

The telephone survey was conducted from Jan. 10 to Jan. 13 and has sampling error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
