Gov. Chris Christie criticizes President Donald Trump travel restrictions

Gender and racial gaps shrink as New Jersey voters say 51 - 34 percent that President Trump's policies will be bad for the state. "There was confusion in the enforcement that went on here".

"Look, my view would be that this should be based upon intelligence that we gather about particular groups and countries", he said, according to the transcript. "You do not need to be banning Muslims from the country".

Christie said at an unrelated news conference in Newark Tuesday that he hasn't decided how to proceed.

During that same November 2015 interview, however, Christie said the USA should not accept any Syrian refugees - not even "orphans under the age of 5".

The court ruled that because the original case did not address teacher tenure laws, the case would have to first be heard in trial court. Fifty-three percent of the Republicans polled disapproved of Christie's performance, with only 39 percent of the GOP-ers surveyed approving. On Tuesday, a Quinnipiac Poll reported the governor's approval rating had dipped to 17 percent, tying the record-low set by former Gov. Brendan Byrne in 1977.

"It's interesting, in an unfriendly way, to wonder how low Gov. Christopher Christie's job-approval numbers might drop", said Mickey Carroll, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Gov. Chris Christie in this television advertisement released on January 20, 2017 directs addicts and those helping them to the state's new "one-stop" addiction services website and hotline. Just 28 percent of voters said they approved of the job the Democratic-controlled state Legislature is doing, compared with 55 percent who disapprove.

In regards to Christie's renewed focus on opioid addiction, while 70 percent of voters said they personally know someone who died from addiction, only 22 percent said they believe the government should take a greater responsibility in helping combat the issue.
