Poor Chris. Seems like someone's let the air out of his bipartisan balloon:

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie's popularity among New Jersey voters has plummeted in the wake of the George Washington Bridge scandal — especially among Democrats, according to a new poll.

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 shows 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 45 percent of Democratic voters viewed him favorably in November's poll, that number fell to 19 percent in today's survey — a 26-point decline.
