So, Quinnipiac University decided to conduct a survey regarding Jersey Shore, because, you know, college kids these days. Anyway, they found out that 35% of New Jersey voters believe that the cast members on that show act the way they do because they are from New York! This is not a compliment.
Those voters agree with Governor Christopher Christie, who recently said, "what [the show] does is takes a bunch of New Yorkers—most of the people on Jersey Shore are New Yorkers... and drops them at the Jersey Shore, and tries to make Americans feel like this is New Jersey." (Paterson blamed New Jersey for making them act that way—only 19% of voters agreed with him.)
The director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute summed up the results by saying, "New Jerseyans to New York: Keep your low-lifes at home and away from our seashore." Fine, New Jersey... just do us a favor and keep your reality television off our tv sets! Have you seen Jerseylicious? This is all on you, Garden State:
