TRENTON - In the eyes of New Jersey voters surveyed, Gov. Chris Christie is no Kris Kringle.

A new poll from Quinnipiac University out today finds New Jersey voters think Gov. Chris Christie is more like Scrooge than Santa by a 54 to 28 margin.

Republicans saw him as Santa-like, 47 to 36 percent.

Democrats and unaffiliated voters overwhelmingly found the Republican governor to resemble Charles Dickens' bah-humbugging character.

Not everyone seems to mind that the governor is a bit Scrooge-like.

In another Quinnipiac poll released yesterday, voters were almost evenly divided on whether they approve of Christie's performance, 46 to 44 percent.
