NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A new survey shows Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s favorability and job approval ratings in New Jersey are at record lows.

The Rutgers-Eagleton poll on Monday showed a record low of 19 percent have a favorable view of Christie. That’s down four points from six weeks ago.

The weeklong survey ended a day before the jury delivered guilty verdicts in the George Washington Bridge lane closure trial. Former Christie aide Bridget Kelly and bridge authority executive Bill Baroni were found guilty on all counts.

Christie denies wrongdoing and wasn’t charged in the 2013 scheme.

The poll also found the governor’s job approval rating slipped six points to 20 percent, compared with six weeks ago.

The poll surveyed 772 residents with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
