President Barack Obama’s New Jersey job rating stands at 60% approve to 33% disapprove, according to this morning’s Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll.
Obama’s positive job number is statistically similar to the 58% approve to 35% disapprove rating he received in December, according to Monmouth pollster Patrick Murray. However, this marks only the second time Obama reached 60% approval in New Jersey.
The previous 60% approval rating came in May 2011, shortly after Osama bin Laden was killed, Murray said.
The Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll was conducted by telephone with 803 New Jersey adults from February 6 to 10, 2013. This sample has a margin of error of + 3.5 percent. The poll was conducted by the Monmouth University Polling Institute and originally published by the Asbury Park Press and its sister publications (Courier-Post, Courier News, Daily Journal, Daily Record, and Home News Tribune).
