President Barack Obama’s approval rating with New Jersey voters slid this month to 46%, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released this morning. Fifty-percent disapprove of the job their president is doing.
That’s down from a 47-47% split in August, and Obama’s worst score in New Jersey since he assumed office.
“Only overwhelming support among black voters keeps President Barack Obama’s job approval from tanking,” said Quinnipiac Poll Director Maurice Carroll. “He trails badly among white voters in a state that still looks pretty blue.”
From November 3 – 8, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,362 New Jersey voters, with a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points.
