TRENTON - A new poll finds a majority of New Jersey voters agree with Gov. Chris Christie's decision to stop construction of a new rail tunnel into Manhattan.

In the Quinnipiac University Poll released today, 53 percent support the governor's decision compared to 37 percent who disagree. Even commuters were split, with 50 percent backing Christie and 47 percent supporting the tunnel.

Christie killed the project last month, citing the potential for runaway costs.

The poll also finds that 90 percent of voters say that if the project is revived, New York should share in the financing.
