    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie continues to receive strong support from the state's registered voters for his leadership during Superstorm Sandy.
     
    A Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released Wednesday shows Christie's favorability rating is 67 percent among registered voters, up more than 15 points from before the storm.

      Eighty-one percent of the voters surveyed say Christie and President Barack Obama showed “needed cooperation and bipartisanship” after the storm compared to 12 percent who say Christie “went too far in his praise” of the Democratic president.
     
    More than three-quarters of New Jersey voters polled say Obama's response to Sandy made no difference when it came to how they voted for president.
     
    The phone survey of 1,108 registered voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
