Thirty-two percent of voters have a bad view of the Garden State, making it the second-highest negative state, according to results of Public Policy Polling.

“One possible reason is that states like New Jersey and Illinois have a lot of corrupt politicans that make the news a lot and the nation sees that” said poll analyst  Jim Williams.

He said shows like “Jersey Shore” could also have influenced voters.

“That show might also lead some voters to have a negative opinion of New Jersey as well.”

There are some differences across party lines.

“Democrats are 24% favorable towards New Jersey, Republicans are a little better at 29% favorable and independent voters have a 35% unfavorable view of the state.”

California was the only state perceived worse by voters, at 44% unfavorable.

Hawaii topped the list as the most favorable state in the nation at 54%.  Other states viewed in positive territory include Colorado (44%), Tennessee (48%), Virginia (45%), and South Dakota (42%).
