Stockton University's Polling Institute of the Hughes Center for Public Policy released the results of its latest poll, which revealed that only 29-percent of New Jerseyans say the president is doing a good job.

The poll also showed that large majorities favor stricter gun control laws including a ban on semiautomatic rifles and a solution that allows undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, also known as DREAMers, to stay and apply for citizenship.

The Hughes Center for Public Policy interviewed 728 adult New Jersey residents for the poll between Thursday, March 22nd, and Thursday, March 29th.
