New York City voters gave their elected officials high scores for their individual responses to Superstorm Sandy. However, what is most notable from the survey released this morning is where the Garden State’s governor landed on the list.

Gov. Chris Christie received the best grade among New York City voters for his response to Sandy, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. Nearly 90 percent of voters said Christie’s response was “excellent” or “good.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, President Barack Obama and Mayor Michael Bloomberg all received high scores. However, they trailed New Jersey’s Republican governor in the blue state’s poll.

“The storm-of-the-century brings out the best in Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Yorkers say. But that love fest between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and President Barack Obama seems to have moved voters especially,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in a statement.

When asked who did the best job responding to the storm, 36 percent of New York City voters said Christie, 22 percent said the president, 15 percent said New York’s governor and 12 percent favored Bloomberg, according to the poll.

Similarly, 89 percent of voters polled said Christie’s response was “excellent” or “good,” 85 percent said the same for Cuomo, 84 percent for Obama and 75 percent rated Bloomberg “excellent” or “good.”

From November 14 - 18, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,165 New York City voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points.
