Sandy Won’t Spoil Summer Plans: Poll

According to the latest Rutgers-Eagelton Poll, more than three-quarters of regular Jersey shore visitors will not let Superstorm Sandy affect their plans for the coast this summer.

More than 60 percent of respondents plan to spend about as much time “down the shore” as usual, and 13 percent actually plan to stay longer this year. Of the respondents who plan to make shorter stays, just under two-thirds say Sandy is the reason they are cutting back.

“The summer tourist season seems surprisingly stable,” said David Redlawsk, director of the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll and professor of political science at Rutgers. “The lure of the Jersey shore is strong, and most respondents do not plan to let the storm interfere with their regular summer vacation beach routines.”

Atlantic City topped the list of destinations among respondents (11 percent). Seaside Heights came in at a close second, despite the devastation caused by Sandy.
