Just 31% of New Jersey voters say the governor is doing a “good” or “excellent” job, essentially unchanged from June, while 41% rate his work as “only fair” and 25% rate his job as “poor.” Among Democrats, 45% give him rating of “good” or “excellent” while 39% rate his work as “only fair” and 12% rate his job as “poor.”
