Who knew so many New Jersey-ans hated New Jersey?

A Monmouth/Gannett poll released yesterday found that 49% of all New Jersey residents would leave their home state if they could, compared to 44% willing to stick it out in the Garden State forever. The poll found that those looking to leave tend to be younger and make more money that those who want to stay.

“The poll points to a real possibility that active working adults and higher earning retirees will leave the state in greater numbers, leaving behind a generally low-income senior population. This could put added demand on public services, but with a diminished tax base to carry the costs,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

The full poll is [here].
