Gov. Jon Corzine's automobile accident has had little effect on his popularity in New Jersey, which has improved because of his propery tax reduction plan, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released this morning. Corzine's approval rating is at 51%-36%, his best showing since taking office in January 2006.
He was at 51%-36% among 800 voters polled before his accident (April 10-12), and at 52%-35% among the 500 surveyed after extensive media coverage of his injuries (April 12-16).
Corzine was at 50%-34% in a February 28 Quinnipiac poll.
