TRENTON Gov. Chris Christie's popularity among New Jersey voters has plummeted in the wake of the George Washington Bridge The Rutgers-Eagleton poll, released today, shows 46 percent of voters view the Republican governor favorably, while 43 percent have an unfavorable view two weeks after e-mails surfaced that appear to link a Christie staff member to the bridge controversy.

That's a 19-point drop from the group's last survey, in November, when 65 percent of voters saw Christie favorably just before he was re-elected in a landslide.

The poll also reveals that Democrats are abandoning their support of Christie, who repeatedly touted a message of bipartisanship on the campaign trail last year and bolstered his re-election bid with the endorsements of more than 60 Democratic officials. While November's poll showed 45 percent of Democratic voters viewed him favorably, that number has fallen to 19 percent in today's survey a 26-point decline.

As for Christie's own party, 78 percent of Republicans still have a favorable perception of the governor.
