Christie's Approval Rises

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is seeing a rise in political fortune in the new year. Despite relentless attacks from Democrats, the Republican has stuck with his cost-cutting policies. He has also vowed to not raise taxes despite calls to do so from the majority party in the legislature. Now voters appear to be rewarding him.

Christie is also talked about as a possible Presidential or Vice-Presidential candidate for 2012 or 2016. His tough, non-compromising demeanor has helped bring the state back from record deficits and closer to fiscal sanity.

Approve: 52%
Disapprove: 40%
Other/und: 8%

This is fully 6% higher approval than his previous Quinnipiac result.
"New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie is a real New Jersey guy and he stirs a lot of real New Jersey emotions," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"A lot of people like him and his policies and others who don't like his policies like him anyway. And then there are people who don't like him or his policies. Go figure. Or if you're a New Jersey guy, or a Jersey girl, and don't like to be told what to do - don't figure.
This also shows Obama's approval rising to 55%.
