TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - It’s no secret Gov. Chris Christie is a Bruce Springsteen mega-fan, and New Jersey residents don’t seem to mind the obsession.

That’s according to a new Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll that was issued Monday in honor of the Boss’s 65th birthday.

The poll finds nearly half of Jersey residents say Christie’s obsession is “kind of cool” - more than double the number who find it a little embarrassing.

And the governor’s in good company. More than 40 percent of those polled described themselves Springsteen fans, while 34 percent have Springsteen music in their personal collections.

More than half also feel a least a little proud knowing the Boss hails from their state.

The poll of 802 adults has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
