74% approval in January of 2013, then the scandal hit, in this case, a phony scandal of a lane closure on the GW bridge. His numbers have been in freefall ever since.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low as he prepares for a likely presidential campaign, according to a Quinnipiac University poll published Monday.
Fifty-six percent of voters say they disapprove of the job the Republican is doing, compared to 38 percent who say they approve. That puts him farther into negative territory than he was in a January poll, when 46 percent said they approved and 48 percent said they disapproved. His high-water mark was 74 percent approval in a poll published in January 2013.
“The governor’s job approval hits a new low and voters think his presidential ambitions are distracting him from his day job,” said Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director Maurice Carroll in a statement. “Besides, they don't think he’d be a good president.”
