President Barack Obama has a 52%-35% approval rating in New Jersey, according to a Fairleigh Dickinson University poll. But by a 44%-33% margin, New Jerseyans believe they would be worse off under Obama’s health care reform proposal.
Gov. Jon Corzine, who is in a statistical dead heat with Republican Christopher Christie, according to portions of the FDU poll released earlier this week, is increasing his support among Obama supporters. Corzine gets 72% of those who approve of Obama’s job performance, up from 66% last month.
