Is New Jersey headed in the right direction?
According to information from 's PublicMind, not since 2004 have more people polled said the state was looking up than it was on the wrong track. Even then, it was only a 42 percent to 41 percent majority, basically an even split. The resignation of then Gov. Jim McGreevey helped push the "wrong direction" vote up to 51 percent and the right direction number to 31 percent, and that's how the majority would stay.
That is, until now.
According to the most recent poll by PublicMind, 46 percent say “things in New Jersey are moving in the right direction” compared to 43 percent who say it’s “off on the wrong track.”
Those numbers coincide with Gov. Chris Christie's approval ratings in the latest poll. According to PublicMind, 51 percent say they approve of the job he’s doing, while 36 percent disapprove. Christie also the governor received a new high of poll takers who said he is doing a "good" or "excellent" job: 47 percent.
