New Jersey voters not only don’t like President Barack Obama’s job performance but also don’t think he should be re-elected.

Participants in a Quinnipiac University Poll released today handed the president his lowest scores ever in the Garden State, with a disapproval rate of 52-44 percent, compared with a 50-46 percent positive score on June 21.

By a 49-45 percent margin, the voters said Obama does not deserve to be re-elected, although they said by 45-37 percent that they would vote for Obama over an unnamed Republican challenger in the 2012 presidential race, according to a the poll.

Meanwhile, voters stopped their governor’s slide, giving Chris Christie a 47-46 percent approval rating for his best score in four months. That compares with a negative 44-47 percent score in Quinnipiac’s June 21 survey. He earned an approval rating of 84-12 percent among Republicans and 53-39 percent among independent voters. Democrats drubbed him with a 76-17 percent disapproval.

Gender gaps rattle the ratings for both Obama and Christie in the telephone poll of 1,624 voters between Aug. 9 and 15.

“Politics makes bad pillow talk in New Jersey,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the independent Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “There are big gender gaps in the approval ratings for Gov. Christopher Christie, with men for him and women against him, and President Barack Obama, who does much better among women than he does among men.”

Obama gets a 60-37 percent nay vote from men but a 51-44 percent approval score from women. The gender gap for Christie has men approving of him by a 58-36 percent margin, while women disapprove, 55-37 percent.
