MYFOXNY.COM -

A survey of more than 1,000 New York City voters found that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did the best job responding to deadly superstorm Sandy.

Millions of homes were without power for several days and thousands lost their homes to the storm which caused flooding and brought fierce winds to the region.

Thirty-six percent of NYC voters favored Christie.

Twenty-two percent of responders say President Barack Obama did the best job followed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo at 15 percent and Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 12 percent.

Of those surveyed, 89 percent said Christie's response was "excellent" or "good"  with 85 percent for Cuomo, 84 percent for Obama and 75 percent for Bloomberg.

"The storm-of-the-century brings out the best in Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Yorkers say. But that love fest between New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie and President Barack Obama seems to have moved voters especially," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "While all four leaders get very high marks - it seems a hug or two never hurts."
