Poll: Christie budget tough, but not fair

A Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey Poll released today finds that people around the Garden State say Gov. Christie's budget proposals are tough, but not fair.

Twenty-two percent of those polled say they are satisfied with the governor's budget plan. Another 32 percent say they can live with it, while 44 percent say they are dissatisfied.

Only 1-in-4 say the proposal spreads the burden of the cuts evenly.

Most of those polled agreed that the middle class will suffer unfairly.
