Poll: Nearly three-quarters of New Jerseyans say life is not yet "back to normal" after Superstorm Sandy.

BELMAR - Nearly three-quarters of New Jerseyans say life is not yet "back to normal" after Superstorm Sandy.

A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll out today finds most of those surveyed think it will be years before a full recovery happens.

Nearly all of the respondents say they support changes to flood-prone areas.

"Most residents recognize Sandy recovery is a long-term process, and know it will be quite some time before we have recovered," said David Redlawsk, director of the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll and professor of political science at Rutgers. "In addition they support efforts to ensure damage of this magnitude is less likely in the future, even if it means implementing such costly measures as dune construction and elevated buildings."
