Chris Christie's Approval Rate: 44-42

The negatives jumping by 10 points, mostly coming from the undecided category.

If you just look at homes without a public employee in the household (though I don't know why you would look just at that), his numbers are a little better, 48-36.

These aren't great numbers, but they're... actually they're kind of great for a Republican in a liberal state presiding over an awful economy.

There's some good news, too. Sure, they say they don't like Christie -- too mean! Waah! -- but do they object to what he's doing?

Nope.

Not even close, really:

Three of five voters, 60 percent, continue to say the state should hold the line on spending even if many programs are reduced, while just a quarter, 23 percent, say the state should raise taxes if necessary and continue to support state programs.

I think it's an easy thing for voters to say "Oh, I disapprove, he's too abrasive, he's too mean, those poor teachers." But meanwhile they back what he's doing.

A case of them choosing to hate the playah rather than the game.
