TRENTON — A new poll shows two-thirds of New Jerseyans who live in areas that were hard-hit by Superstorm Sandy say life has returned to normal, while roughly 1 in 7 say they are far from recovery six months after the mega-storm hit.

The Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press poll out Monday finds that the number of residents in hard-hit communities who continue to struggle barely changed since December. And 15 percent say they have barely recovered.

The topic could come up Monday when Gov. Chris Christie appears on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program, which will be broadcast from the Jersey Shore.

The poll of 806 New Jersey adults was conducted by telephone from April 11-14 and has an error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
