‘Jersey Shore’ cast acts badly because they’re New Yorkers

‘Jersey Shore’ cast acts badly because they’re New Yorkers

Poll finds New Jerseysans not fond of reality show

Were "Jersey Shore's'' Snooki and Ronnie just being Snooki and Ronnie when they were arrested separately for drinking or fighting in Seaside Heights or was it the shore environment that caused them to go astray?

Well, it turns out that 35 percent of New Jerseyans agree with Gov. Chris Christie that Snooki, Ronnie, The Situation, Pauly D., Sammi, Angelina and Vinnie, the cast members of the reality show, act badly because they're New Yorkers.

While 19 percent agree with New York Gov. David Paterson that the Jersey Shore environment causes people to act badly, according to a Quinnipiac University poll made public Tuesday.

Another 46 percent are undecided.

"New Jerseyans to New York: Keep your low-lifes at home and away from our seashore," Maurice Carroll, the poll's director, said. "Garden State voters don't like the show and believe it's bad for the state. They back Gov. Chris Christie over Gov. David Paterson almost 2 to 1 in deciding who to blame for the hijinx of Snooki, The Situation and the rest."

 

New Jersey men agree with Christie and blame New York 40 to 20 percent. Women blame New York 31 to 18 percent, with 51 percent are undecided. Democrats split 25 to 25 percent, with 50 percent undecided, while Republicans blame New Yorkers 44 to 17 percent, as do independent voters 37 to 18 percent.
