Christie's rating bounces back in poll

 A new poll shows Gov. Chris Christie’s approval ratings bouncing back after taking a dip this spring, the Associated Press reports.

    The Fairleigh Dickinson-PublicMind poll released Tuesday shows 54 percent approve of the way Christie is handling his job; 36 percent disapprove.

    That’s up from May, when an equal number — 44 percent — approved and disapproved of the way Christie was handling the job.

    Poll director Peter Woolley says the local and state budget battles at every level in the spring hurt the governor. Woolley says Christie say scored a big win on pension and benefits reform in June,
and weathered Hurricane Irene in August.

    The telephone poll of 800 registered voters was conducted March 29-April 4, and has an error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
