Bridgegate: Most Jerseyans say Christie was Aware of Lane Closures

Bridgegate: Most Jerseyans say Christie was Aware of Lane Closures
BY ERIC GUNDERSEN

Gov. Chris Christie’s ratings have taken a significant hit in the Monmouth University Poll, with most New Jerseyans inclined to believe that he was actually involved in the decision to close toll lanes on the George Washington Bridge in 2013 or at least that he knew about it at the time. The first poll taken since the U.S. Attorney announced charges in the Bridgegate case also found that just 1-in-10 Garden State residents believe that the three individuals indicted in the scheme were the only ones involved.

Gov. Christie’s overall job rating currently stands at 35% approve to 54% disapprove among New Jersey residents and 35% approve to 56% disapprove among the state’s registered voters. This marks a significant drop from just a few months ago and is an all-time low in Christie’s net job rating. In February, his job rating stood at 48% approve to 44% disapprove among all residents and 47% approve to 46% disapprove among voters. The governor’s job approval rating in the Monmouth University Poll once stood as high as 70% – that was in February 2013 following Superstorm Sandy.

New Jersey Republicans continue to support their governor, giving him a 65% approve to 32% disapprove job rating, down only slightly from the 70% to 24% rating he received three months ago. He has lost significantly more ground among independents – 34% approve to 51% disapprove in the current poll compared to 47% to 43% in February, as well as Democrats – now 19% approve to 69% disapprove compared to 39% to 55% in February.
