Gov. Chris Christie may be gaining popularity across the country, but apparently he isn’t doing much for his local image. A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll says that a majority of state residents believe Christie should be focused on fixing the state, and not worrying about campaigning. The poll says by a 64 to 24 percent margin that Christie should be in the state, rather than campaigning for key GOP races across the country. Christie has visited a number of states, including California, Iowa, and Wisconsin.
Despite all this, his job approval rating is up. The poll says 45 percent of the state thinks he is doing an excellent or good job, which betters his August mark of 39 percent.
