Poll: Christie budget tough, not all that fair

TRENTON, N.J. - April 13, 2010

A Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey Poll released Tuesday finds that New Jerseyans agree about the tough part, but not necessarily about fair.

Twenty-two percent of those polled say they are satisfied with the governor's budget plan. Another 32 percent say they can live with it.

But 44 percent say they're dissatisfied.

And only 1-in-4 say the plan spreads the pain evenly.

Among those who believe some groups will suffer unfairly, 39 percent say it's the middle class, 29 percent the poor and 30 percent teachers.

The telephone poll of 804 adults was taken from April 7 to 11 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
