Jerseyans Pick Obama Over Romney in Poll
President Barack Obama is maintaining a lead over Mitt Romney among New Jersey voters surveyed despite concerns about the way he’s doing his job.
A Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll released Thursday shows Obama 13 percentage points ahead of the Republican. A survey in May showed Obama up by 14 points.
However, only a third of the New Jersey registered voters surveyed believe the country is moving in the right direction and 49 percent approve of the way Obama is handling his job.
The telephone survey of 945 registered and unregistered voters has a sampling error of 3.3 percentage points.
