GOP hero Chris Christie now at 49% disapproval

The people who know him the best certainly don’t think highly of him. The “Christie for President” campaign may need to be put on hold. Bloomberg:

Christie scored a 49 percent disapproval rate in a Monmouth University poll released today. The finding was 9 percentage points higher than the figure in the most recent Monmouth poll, in February. The governor’s approval rating was unchanged, at 47 percent.

Less than half of those surveyed, 46 percent, were familiar with the town-hall meetings Christie has been holding to explain his budget, his 2 percent property-tax cap and his attempt to reduce pay and benefits for New Jersey’s unionized public employees. The governor, 48, is scheduled to make his 17th-such appearance of 2011 today in Middlesex County.

“Efforts to sell his reform agenda at town-hall meetings generate a lot of media attention, but it appears that New Jerseyans who are paying the most attention to these events have already made up their minds about the governor’s proposals,” Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement.
