Gov. Christie is enjoying a dead-of-winter bump in popularity, according to two polls. A Quinnipiac University poll says 52 percent of New Jersey voters approve of the job the governor is doing, compared to 46 percent back in December.

A second poll from Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey says nearly two out of every three New Jerseyans believe the governor can claim some real accomplishments in his 13 months as governor. This is better score than Govs. Corzine or McGreevey got in their entire terms. Wowzers.

Maybe voters are just in a positive mood, though, because President Obama's approval ratings in New Jersey also grew, from 50 percent to 55 percent, as did approval ratings for Democratic Sens. Lautenberg and Menendez, according to Quinnipiac.

Christie's foil, the Democratic legislature, wasn't as lucky. State Senate President Stephen Sweeney has a 25 percent approval rating with 26 percent disapproval, and 48 percent undecided.
