NJ Gov. Chris Christie has an astounding 35-point lead in New Jersey

It looks like helping Obama get re-elected was popular in the blue state of New Jersey...
Seven months before New Jersey voters go to the polls, Gov. Chris Christie continues to enjoy a more than 2-1 lead over his most likely Democratic challenger, state Senator Barbara Buono, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday. Although Ms. Buono is expected to win her party’s June primary, polls show Mr. Christie beating her 60%-25% in the November gubernatorial contest.
Mr. Christie’s advantage comes with a 70% job approval rating. This result continues the governor’s “four-month string of +70 percent approval ratings, the highest score of any governor in the seven states surveyed” by Quinnipiac…The poll finds Mr. Christie maintaining leads among men and women. He defeats Ms. Buono in every region of the state, the poll press release notes, including 48%-36% “in urban areas, normally Democratic strongholds.” While a vein of national Republicans grumbled at Mr. Christie’s November embrace of President Obama in the days after the fall storm, 90% of New Jersey Republicans are standing by their man.
