New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is America's most hated state leader.

A Morning Consult poll released Tuesday found 77 percent of New Jersey voters disapprove of the Republican's job in office and only 18 percent are happy with his performance.

Christie's disapproval rating is the highest recorded number in the survey's history. Christie's term in office will conclude next year.

For three years, Christie's office has dealt with the fallout from the "Bridgegate" scandal. He was most recently criticized this summer after he and his family were spotted using a public beach after closing public beaches after failing to reach a budget deal with state legislators.

Gov. Dan Malloy, D-Conn., was the second-most disliked governor, and had a 68 percent disapproval rating. Gov. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., was in third with a 66 percent disapproval rating in the July 1-Sept. 30 survey.

The governors with the 10 highest approval ratings in the country were all Republicans.

Gov. Charlie Baker, R-Mass., boasted a 69 percent approval rating. Only 17 percent of residents are not happy with him.

Maryland's Larry Hogan took second place with 66 percent, and Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson had a 63 percent approval score.

The other GOP governors in the top 10 approval list were Kay Ivey of Alabama, Doug Burgum of North Dakota, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Phil Scott of Vermont, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, Matt Mead of Wyoming and Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota.

The online poll was conducted among 255,120 registered U.S. voters, and residents from each state voted on their individual leaders. The survey's methodology page did not share a margin of error.
