Gov. Chris Christie is enjoying a rare political Nirvana in New Jersey – a blissful union of high popularity and low expectations.

State voters approve of Christie by a huge margin – yet they don’t expect him to accomplish much during his second term as governor, according to a Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press poll.

Sixty-five percent of registered voters surveyed applaud Christie’s performance in office, compared to 27 percent who disapprove.
