Has Murphy Made Good on His Promises? Taking Stock at the 1-Year Mark

January 15, 2019

Cliff Zukin, an emeritus professor of political science and public policy at Rutgers University and senior adviser to Rutgers’ Eagleton Poll, put a little more of the blame on Sweeney than Murphy. If grading Murphy, Zukin said he would give him a C, incomplete, or low pass.

“But I’m not sure that is all his fault. I really wonder how much he would have gotten done if he had not had an obstructionist senate president kicking sand in his face,” Zukin said.

He noted that many have blamed an inexperienced Murphy and his staff as major problems to getting his agenda completed.
