NEW JERSEY (WABC) -- There's no love for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie this Valentine's Day.

Christie's popularity is plunging in his home state.

A Rutgers-Eagleton poll shows Christie with just a 37-percent approval rating among New Jersey voters, down 7 points from December.

20-percent of individuals polled blamed his attitude, behavior and personality, while the other 15-percent cited the Bridgegate scandal.

10-percent pointed to Christie's perceived lack of attention to New Jersey as he eyes a run for the White House.
