TRENTON, N.J., Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Voters in New Jersey say Gov. Chris Christie is doing a good job and deserves to be returned to office a year from now, a Quinnipiac University poll indicated.

Christie's approval rating is 56 percent among Garden State registered voters, results released Wednesday indicated.

Fifty-two percent said he deserves to be re-elected, compared to 40 percent who said he doesn't, the survey found.

Christie's approval rating is up from a 53 percent-to-42 percent showing in a Sept. 5 poll by the independent Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., soon after he spoke at the Republican National Convention.

In a possible early look at the 2013 election for governor, Christie leads Newark Mayor Cory Booker, a possible Democratic challenger, 46 percent to 42 percent, Quinnipiac said.

Results are based on a survey of 1,405 registered voters in New Jersey conducted Oct. 10-14. The margin of error is 2.6 percentage points.
