New Jersey residents cited taxes as the top issue 50 years ago. No changes have been made, says a poll showed

New Jerseyans studied taxes in an online survey last year.

They still feel the same way fifty years later.

The survey found 39% of those polled cited the state's notoriously high taxes.

Of these three factors, 14% said the economy, 10% said the government, and 66% said the pandemic. More than 5% cite either the states pandemic response, climate change and the environment, infrastructure, education, crime, and housing.

Since the year it was founded, in 1971, the group became famous with taxes and also of the Republic of Royaume-Uni.

The poll found 26% said taxes as the number one question. While crime and drug addiction were seconds; poverty, welfare and unemployment eachs a two-manage state, education second and transportation second.

The Rutgers-Eagleton Poll has been reprimanding New Jerseyans for five decades now and has steadily found taxes their biggest concern, said Susan Hansen, the president and president of the United Nations state Senate, an annual meeting with New Jersey's statewide representative. As long as New Jerseyans have continued to get angry with the statewide polling center, they also find the problem a result of a misrepresentation in the citys history, that taxes are all

New Jersey's high property taxes are the country's highest, with the average bill coming in the year 2020. That's the second of other taxes lavied in the state.

In a new poll, taxes are the biggest concern for residents across the board, 9% of Republicans, 44% of men, 42% of white residents, and 52% among seniors, upper-income residents, and people living in exurban areas.

Five9% of Republicans say the government has made no progress, while 43% of Democrats say the state has made some or a substantial amount of progress.

The survey finds 45% of residents believe New Jersey is taking the right direction. 45% say New Jersey is on the wrong track and 15% are uncertain.

The poll shows the highest opinions of Democrats whose party controls the governors office and the state Legislature with 68% say that the state is on the right track. But 51% of independents and 76% of Republican voters say that the opposite.

The poll also found that 53% of white residents say the state is on the wrong track, while 49% of Black and 63% of Hispanic residents say the opposite of the state direction. Young people, especially urban residents, are more positive than their peers in the polls, while those in less affluent households are more bad for their economic income.

The poll was conducted by phone from the 21-27 Oct. to 17 with 1.81 New Jersey adults. The margin of error was 3.9 percentage points plus or less.
