Almost six in 10 New Jersey residents say the Garden State is an “excellent” (14 percent) or “good” (44 percent) place to live, according to a new Rutgers-Eagleton Poll. Twenty-eight percent rate it as “only fair” and another 13 percent as “poor.”

NJ SEED: An interesting and revealing Rutgers-Eagleton poll demonstrating many positive views about life in NJ. Concerning, however, is the percentage of people who want to leave the state.
