Christie’s approval rating among New Jersey voters, at 65 percent just before he was re-elected last year, dipped to 46 percent favorable to 43 percent unfavorable, according to the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll. The poll was conducted after Christie removed two top aides for their role in orchestrating huge traffic jams near the busy George Washington Bridge, apparently to settle a political score. “The good will the governor built up among Democrats with his handling of the Sandy aftermath is gone, at least for now,” said David Redlawsk, director of the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll and professor of political science at Rutgers University.
