Poll: NYC Voters Give Highest Marks To Christie On Sandy Crisis

Eighty-nine percent of New York City voters believe New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) has done either an “excellent” or “good” job in his response to Hurricane Sandy, a poll from Quinnipiac University released on Tuesday.

The poll shows voters giving high marks to the other two most prominent area leaders, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), as well as President Obama.

Seventy-five percent said Bloomberg has been “excellent” or “good” in his post-Sandy response, while 85 percent give the highest grades to Cuomo as well. Obama earns the top grades from 84 percent of NYC voters.
