Poll: Christie popularity spiking throughout Garden State

EDISON - A new poll shows that Gov. Christie's popularity is on the rise on both sides of the aisle.

According to a Fairleigh Dickinson University poll, Republicans approving of the governor's performance stands at 83 percent. His approval rating with Democrats is at 36 percent; what Fairleigh Dickinson University politics professor Peter Woolley calls "quite a good number."

Speaking at a town hall meeting in Freehold today, Christie was asked if he would pursue a job in Washington in the near future; or as a possible GOP vice presidential candidate in November.

"I haven't made my mind up on what I'm going to do," said Christie. "I have a job to do. I have a four-year contract with all of you and it runs out in January of 2014...sometime by the end of this year or early next year I have to decide what I'm going to do."
