Christian Heinze reports on the latest Monmouth University, showing that New Jersey Republican governor Chris Christie remains popular at home: 

A new Monmouth University poll shows Chris Christie sporting a fetching 51%/35% approval rating in New Jersey -- numbers that mirror another recent poll.

The breakdown:

a. Indies like Christie's performance by an impressive 54%/28%. That's+26%.

b. Republicans give him a +56% approval rating; Dems -22%.

c. Men approve of the job he's doing by +31%, while women are split 43%/42%. Even though that's a large gender gap, Christie's number with women is pretty strong, considering females (especially in New Jersey) lean Democratic.

d. For those who think he's turned toxic on education, guess what -- for the first time, people like the job he's doing on education (+10%).
