A new SUSA poll shows these awful numbers for Christie:

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Chris Christie is doing as Governor?
Approve 38%
Disapprove 56%

Should Governor Chris Christie run for President of the United States in 2012? Not run for President? Or do you not know enough to say?
Should Run 15%
Should Not 73%

Compared to Barack Obama, would Christie be a better President? A worse President? Or would he be about the same?
Better 29%
Worse 53%
About The Same 14%

Compared to George W. Bush, would Christie be a better President? A worse President? Or would he be about the same?
Better 25%
Worse 30%
About The Same 32%

Yeah, and this wouldn't be the first time a pollster comes out with terrible numbers for Christie only to be completely discredited by everyone else.

Not sure if they're a joke, exactly, but they do have a history of reporting much harsher approval numbers for NJ incumbents, Democrat and Republican alike.

The most recent Quinnipiac (3 weeks ago) showed Christie at 4746 approvals. I'd be surprised if his numbers really moved so sharply, so fast without a scandal.

SUSA's last poll had him at 33/62 which was way out of line which everyone else was showing. This is actually an improvement from the last SUSA poll.

Hughes Center has him at 48-45. As I expected, President Obama's ratings have surged here to 66% thanks to the death of Bin Laden.

I don't see why this guy is suddenly the darling of the right. He's like the Yankee version of Haley Barbour (substitute rudeness for racism).

he is the public face (and best public communicator) of those on the frontlines in a key battlefield of the class war: the battle to destroy the existing labor union infrastructure, where it is strongest (or, increasingly, the only place it exists at all), the public sector.  obviously the business press will fawn over him, and thus so will the people that internalize the stories thrown at them.

This, also many Republicans don't realize that Christie won largely due to Corzine and would have lost against, say, Codey or Pallone.

I don't think that's accurate.

Codey would have won, but that's a special case because he was a popular former governor. Christie was viewed as an incredibly strong candidate, one that New Jersey Democrats viewed in 2008 to be, by and large, unbeatable. I don't think Pallone would have have won.

Christie might have looked good on paper but he ran a pretty poor campaign. He allowed the election to become a referendum on him, not Corzine.
And even the WSJ accused him of saying nothing of substance about the issues as a candidate.

Christie ran a pretty bad campaign and only barely beat the very unpopular Corzine. Someone who didn't have the baggage of being an unpopular incumbent almost certainly would have beaten him.

Really silly speculation. Codey fell out of favor with the machine so its really moot. Corzine did as the unions commanded.

Another poll out today (FDU):

44% Approve
44% Disapprove

40% Favorable
45% Unfavorable

The Fairleigh Dickinson University poll of 804 registered voters statewide was conducted by telephone with both landline and cell phones from May 16 through May 22, 2011, and has a margin of error of +/-3.5 percentage points.

SurveyUSA seems to not only have a anti-Obama bias in most of their state surveys, but also a anti-Christie bias ... Tongue

Even so, this the second or third poll that finds Christie's numbers slipping during the last month. Maybe the locals can enlighten us if anything special happened or it's just Newjerseyans returning to their usual grumpy mode.

Christie has a high floor and a low ceiling like any NJ governor. This is nothing new. Of course, the Democrats are about to take away our property tax relief.

Ever since the property tax cap of last year, there haven't been any accomplishments.

The teachers' union is running ads against Christie.  And his poll numbers have usually been lowest in the spring, for whatever reason.
