Christie's Numbers Improve at Home

While New Jersey Gov. Chris Christe (R) has been getting an enormous amount of national attention around his will-he-won't-he-run presidential prospects, a new Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind survey shows Christie's approval numbers bouncing back in his home state. Christie has a 54% approval and 36% disapproval among registered voters in New Jersey, a significant improvement over his numbers in May, when the fierce spring budget fight brought his numbers as low as 44% approving and the same percentage disapproving.

The Hotline: "The new poll, ironically, counters one of the main arguments for Christie to enter the White House race: If he's not going to win reelection in 2013, why not take a shot nationally in 2012, the argument goes. But if the boost in his numbers is a lasting one, and Christie is seriously interested in reelection, there is less incentive to opt for higher office this early in his tenure."
