NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -

A majority of New Jersey residents surveyed feel getting back to normal following Superstorm Sandy will take up to five years, according to the findings in a new Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released Thursday.

According to the poll, nearly three quarters of New Jersey residents say life is not yet back to normal. Fifteen percent of those who said things weren't yet back to normal felt optimistic that it would return to normal within one year, while 64 percent felt it would take one to five years for things to return to normal.

"Most residents recognize Sandy recovery is a long-term process, and know it will be quite some time before we have recovered," David Redlawsk, director of the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll said in a statement. "In addition, they support efforts to ensure damage of this magnitude is less likely in the future, even if it means implementing such costly measures as dune construction and elevated buildings."

The poll found that 11 percent think a return to normal will take five to 10 years. Two percent thought it might take more than a decade and 7 percent said the state would never get back to normal.
