Obama's popularity slips in N.J., poll finds

Obama's popularity slips in N.J., poll finds

But residents like their Congressmen

New Jersey's opinions of the president, its two U.S. senators and congressmen are basically positive, although Barack Obama's ratings have dipped, a new Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey poll finds.

The poll also finds New Jerseyans have grown increasingly dissatisfied with the national government, but doubt a change in congressional leadership would make any difference.

Only 24 percent of New Jersey residents are satisfied with the way things are going in Washington, while 66 percent are dissatisfied. Satisfaction is at its lowest level since the new administration took office last year. Eighty-seven percent of Republicans and 75 percent of independents express dissatisfaction with Washington. Forty-seven percent of Democrats are now more likely to be dissatisfied rather than satisfied, 40 percent — which is a first for them since Obama took office.
