Christie's Approval Rating Drops Below 50 Percent in NJ

Gov. Chris Christie’s approval rating has dipped below 50 percent among New Jersey voters for the first time since 2011, according to a new poll.

A Monmouth University poll released Monday found 49 percent of registered voters approve of the governor amid the George Washington bridge scandal that has enmeshed his administration. Another 46 percent of people disapprove of him.

That is a 9-point drop since last month.

  1. Christie Proposes Largest Budget in New Jersey History

    Governor Chris Christie proposed the largest budget in New Jersey history, a $34.4 billion plan bloated by rising costs for health benefits, pensions and debt.

    Spending would rise 3.5 percent from this fiscal year’s $33.3 billion as the state makes a $2.25 billion payment, the biggest ever, to its underfunded pension system. Ninety-four percent of the budget growth is for pensions, health benefits and debt service, leaving little money to add other services and programs, Christie told lawmakers today in Trenton.
