A bunch of blogs sited a poll released yesterday by Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey that found that, surprise surprise, most New Jersey residents are against leasing state assets like the turnpike or the parkway.
“The Monmouth University/Gannett poll showed that 55 percent of residents opposed the idea Corzine has dubbed "asset monetization" without explaining the details. Nearly 60 percent (59-30) opposed the leasing of the Turnpike or Garden State Parkway, and about the same number (58-33) opposed allowing private developers to build on top of train stations."
