Democratic State Chairman John Currie lauded Gov. Phil Murphy after a Monmouth University poll released Tuesday found his approval rating had spiked above 70% amid the COVID-19 crisis.
“Governor Murphy has provided our state with decisive, steady and compassionate leadership throughout this crisis, and New Jerseyans are clearly recognizing that fact,” Currie said. “The Governor’s actions along with the incredible work being done by frontline health care workers, first responders and so many others are saving lives every day. Governor Murphy has made it crystal clear that he cares deeply about each and every single person in our great state and that he will do whatever it takes to protect them, and residents overwhelmingly support his efforts.”
The poll found Murphy’s approval rating was 71%-21%, and 79% of the state’s residents said the governor has done a good job responding to the pandemic.
