New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says President Barack Obama "has kept every promise he's made" about helping the state recover from Superstorm Sandy.

Speaking Monday on MSNBC on the 6-month anniversary of the deadly storm, the Republican says presidential politics was the last thing on his mind as he toured storm-devastated areas with the president last fall.

Christie's warm embrace of Obama angered some Republicans, who said it helped tip a close election to the Democrat and away from Mitt Romney, who Christie endorsed.

During Superstorm Sandy, many firefighters responded to emergencies while their own homes were being ravaged.  Now New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is responding to their needs with a program connecting firefighters who still need help rebuilding their homes with other firefighters who have time and skills to volunteer.

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.
