New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has little support in his state, according to the results of a new survey.

The Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll found that just 26 percent of New Jersey voters approve of the job Christie is doing, with 66 percent saying they disapprove of his job performance.

That disapproval rating is the highest number this particular poll has received for the Republican governor.

Further, 49 percent of those surveyed said they dislike everything about Christie — a 10-point jump from roughly one year ago.

"Governor Christie likes to be identified as someone with thick skin and penchant for being tough. With so few voters supportive of him, these are traits that should serve him well personally as well as politically," said Krista Jenkins, professor of political science and director of PublicMind.

Christie's highest approval rating in PublicMind polling was 77 percent, which came in 2012 after Hurricane Sandy.

Other key findings from the poll:
  • 20 percent said they like everything about Christie.
  • 23 percent are confident New Jersey is in a good place.
  • 46 percent said Christie's work with Donald Trump's campaign has lowered their opinion of him; 47 percent said it has made no difference.
A Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll in March found Christie's approval rating to be 30 percent, which equaled his previous low point in June 2015.
