Chris Christie Falls To Record Low In Approval

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie isn't having such a great week, what with the news that Bridgegate indictments are coming down the pike and former Port Authority Christie crony David Samson looking like he's going for a perp walk.

But the news got even worse for him today:

 Fifty-four percent of New Jersey's registered voters disapprove of the job Chris Christie is doing as governor -- his highest job disapproval ratings to date, according to a new survey from Rutgers University's Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling. Just 41 percent approve of Christie's job performance.

Christie's stances on taxation and the budget also reached new depths in the eyes of voters. Fewer than one-in-three approve of his handling of the economy, and a vast majority think the state is headed in the wrong direction.

And the Republican governor's handling of the state's recovery from Hurricane Sandy has also hit record lows, with just 48 percent approving of his job - a seven point drop since February. That's nearly a 40 point drop since April 2013, when 87 percent of Garden Staters approved of Christie's handling of the recovery effort.

"Often, as the economy improves, voters feel more positive. But in this state there is now widespread feeling that things are on the wrong track," said David Redlawsk, director of the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling. "While the governor continues to explore a national run, voters back home are expressing more and more concern about what's happening in New Jersey and the governor's performance in dealing with these issues."

Indictments for his cronies seem to loom shortly, he's very unpopular at home and he has made a mess of the economy and the fiscal health of his state.

How delusional does Christie have to be to think he can still run for president?
