Stockton University poll finds bipartisan support in NJ for more stimulus money

One of the only Biden policies that Democrats and Republicans in New Jersey agree on is the need for more federal stimulus money, according to a new Stockton University Poll. In the survey, released Wednesday, voters from both major parties agreed that recent stimulus checks were not enough and that small businesses need more relief.

The poll also found a deep partisan divide on views of the Biden administration. Democrats, who make up the largest voting bloc in the state, overwhelmingly supported the president at 91% while only 12% of Republicans did.

The polarization that defined the 2020 elections seems to be continuing; while 99% of Democrats felt somewhat or very confident that Biden can ease the pandemic, only 47% of Republicans agreed.
