A group of New Jersey residents held a protest rally outside of the New Jersey State House in Trenton, saying that it is “time to unmask the Garden State.”
The group says that they are not happy with Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive orders surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
About 200 people attended the rally and said that it was time to stop wearing masks and to reopen businesses around the state.
“The whole purpose here is to give the power back to the legislators. We want our Assembly and our Senate to be able to have a voice. Because right now, Murphy is a tyrant. Right now, Murphy’s ruling like a king. He has no accountability,” said one protester.
But despite the large crowd in Trenton, the governor is doing well in public opinion polls. The latest Fairleigh Dickinson University poll found that 67% of New Jersey residents approve of the job the governor is doing regarding the virus, while 26% disapprove.
