A new poll finds Gov. Chris Christie's popularity taking a hit with registered New Jersey voters, the Associated Press reports this morning.

The Fairleigh Dickinson-PublicMind poll released today shows the governor's job approval and favorability ratings dipped this month. An equal number — 44 percent — approve and disapprove of the way Christie is handling the job. That's down from the 51-41 percent approval rating Christie had in April.

Forty percent of those polled have an overall favorable view of Christie. Forty-five percent don't. In April, it was 47 percent favorable, 41 percent unfavorable.

The governor's popularity also sagged at this time last year then rebounded.
