While RNC speech didn't bump numbers, poll shows Christie is popular among voters.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows Christie didn't get a bounce from delivering the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention. But the first-term governor hardly needed it.
 
The poll finds 53 percent of voters approve of Christie's job performance, compared with 42 percent who disapprove.  That's nearly identical to his score in a July poll.
 
Nearly two-thirds of men approve of Christie, while women are statistically split over whether the governor is doing a good job. Two-thirds of black voters disapprove.
 
The telephone survey of 1,560 registered voters took place from Aug. 27 to Sept. 2 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent.
