NEPTUNE, N.J. (AP) - A new poll finds New Jerseyans are souring on how the state is handling Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts.

The Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press poll out Wednesday found public satisfaction with the recovery effort has dropped below 50 percent for the first time since the storm hit in October 2012.

It also found most respondents say the aid process has been too slow. They place the blame more on state management of the process than on federal regulatory requirements.

Overall, 14 percent of respondents are very satisfied with the recovery effort, while 34 percent are somewhat satisfied. Meanwhile, 21 percent are very dissatisfied and 22 percent are somewhat dissatisfied.

The telephone poll of 803 adults was taken from March 30-April 1. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
