The number of people who view Gov. Chris Christie favorably is on the decline, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.
Positive feelings about Christie dipped across the board in the wake of the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy, including among Republicans and Northeasterners.
According to the poll, Christie was viewed positively by 17 percent overall and negatively by 32 percent. It represents a stark contrast from October, when the Republican governor was on the verge of a landslide re-election on Democratic turf and viewed positively by 33 percent and negatively by 17 percent.
Feelings about Mr. Christie have soured among independents (12 percent positively/28 percent negatively), Republicans (23 percent/ 29 percent) and Northeasterners (28 percent/25 percent). In fact, not a single group of voters viewed Christie more positively than negatively in the poll, according to the poll.
