New Jersey voters say 85 - 13 percent that they are not changing their summer vacation plans because of Hurricane Sandy, as 74 percent say the Garden State's recovery from Sandy is going "very well" or "somewhat well," according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Voters approve 85 - 10 percent of the way Gov. Christopher Christie is handling the recovery from Sandy, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Voter ratings of other agencies and insurance companies for handling of Sandy recovery are:
  • 43 percent rate the Federal Emergency Management Agency "excellent" or "good," with 47 percent saying "not so good" or "poor;"
  • 70 percent rate the state government "excellent" or "good," with 24 percent saying "not so good" or "poor;"
  • 74 percent rate their local government "excellent" or "good," with 18 percent saying "not so good" or "poor;"
  • 25 percent rate insurance companies "excellent" or "good," with 56 percent saying "not so good" or "poor."
"Call Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, or Snooki and The Situation for you younger folks, but don't invite Sandy. New Jersey voters say Sandy has not changed their vacation plans" said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"Will the Shore open for business in the summer? Voters are happy with the recovery.

"Gov. Christopher Christie's Sandy performance is still a huge political plus.

"Garden State voters think governments - state and local - are doing a good job on recovery. FEMA gets mixed marks. Insurance companies get a thumbs down."

New Jersey voters say 69 - 23 percent, including 75 - 22 percent among Shore area voters, that building sand dunes and sea walls to protect ocean front communities is a good idea, even if they block some views.

Voters also support 73 - 22 percent, including 73 - 21 percent at the Shore, having the government buy flood-threatened properties and allow no further development on those sites.

"Better safe than scenic. Those Shore dwellers who say dunes would spoil their views don't get much sympathy - even from their neighbors in Shore areas. In fact, New Jersey voters say 72 - 22 percent that government has the right to block someone's ocean view with a dune or seawall," Carroll said.

"And voters are ready to break the cycle of flooding and recovery by having the government buy flood-prone properties and giving them back to Mother Nature." Sen. Menendez Approval

U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez' job approval rating has bounced back to 40 - 37 percent from a negative 36 - 41 percent approval rating in a February 20 Quinnipiac University poll. The negative rating, in the wake of allegations of impropriety, marked a 15-point drop from a 51 - 33 percent approval January 23.

New Jersey voters are divided 35 - 36 percent, with 29 percent undecided, on whether Sen. Menendez is honest and trustworthy. Last month, voters said 44 - 28 percent that he is not honest and trustworthy.

Voters say 40 - 35 percent, with 25 percent undecided, that they are satisfied with the way Menendez is handling this matter. The controversy is worth investigation, 53 percent of voters say, while 30 percent say it is politically motivated.

"The fall-out from those scandal stories has wounded Sen. Robert Menendez, but it looks like he has stopped the bleeding and even recovered a little," Carroll said.

"A substantial number of voters say the attacks are 'just politics,' but a majority thinks the allegations should be investigated."

From March 19 - 24, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,129 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia and the nation as a public service and for research.
