    I think part of it has to do with the Republican equivalent of ancestrally Dem areas down south, a lot of these New England states used to be Republican strongholds, and most seem positively eager to jump in bed with Republican Gov. as long as they seem "moderate". I mean the current Dem governor of Vermont only won by 2%, and there was no incompetent campaigning going on there. Fortunately it seems to be wearing off (finally).

      and a lot of New England states that did have Republican governors recently didn't approve of them towards the end of their terms (eg Don Carcieri, Mitt Romney).

      I'm sure Quinnipiac is overstating it a bit (don't really trust their polls) and besides, SUSA has shown him at the opposite extreme in the past, with something like a 2-1 disapproval. Still, if his approval is above water at all, and especially if it is above Obama's, that reflects very poorly on the state of New Jersey.
