"New Jersey is filled with crooks," said a 19-year-old communications major from Ocean.
Out of the 100 students that were polled, there was an even split, 50 percent answered yes and 50 percent answered no, as to whether or not the New Jersey's political system is working.
"Our elected officials abuse the power granted to them for their own personal gains," said a 20-year-old biology major from Union Beach.
Regardless of the even split, the more vocal students appeared to be on the negative side of this issue. "People are not doing what they are supposed to do," said an 18-year-old undecided major from Red Bank.
When asked what’s wrong with New Jersey’s political system, a few students answered Gov. Chris Christie, while others focused on his current political adversaries – teachers.
An 18-year-old journalism student from Colts Neck complained that "teachers are getting unfair pensions."
Yet, another student felt that the state is not working and the schools have become a scapegoat for what is wrong with the state.
"Everything is blamed on the school system," said an 18-year-old engineering major from Eatontown.
Similarly, an 18-year-old undecided major from Oakhurst said “the recent changes to the school systems” is what’s wrong with the state.
A 19-year-old communications major from Marlboro said she wasn’t sure what was wrong with New Jersey’s political system, but that there is definitely a problem.
“In New Jersey, we have continuous problems that do not get fixed.”
