Governor Cahill’s standing with New Jersey citizens has increased slightly over the past five months according to the Fourth New Jersey Poll conducted by the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University. Among the 1221 respondents in a statewide sample the Governor received a positive rating from 42% compared to 39% in the May New Jersey Poll. Disapproval of the Governor was at 53% compared to 54% In May. Cahill’s rating remains higher than the 30% favorable rating for the Legislature, but the positive rating for the Legislature is up substantially from the 24% rating in the May Poll. Cahill’s rating among Republicans has rebounded from a low of 41% in May to 46% currently. One year ago the first New Jersey Poll showed Cahill’s highest support among Republicans, 54%. His support among Democrats has remained fairly constant around 41% but among Independents Cahill has dropped from a 39% favorable rating in May to 31% currently.
