Survey: New Jersey is least liked state

According to a recent survey, the rest of the country does not like New Jersey.



In a survey by the website Yougov.com, New Jersey was the only state people tended to dislike.



The website found 40 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the Garden State and only 30 percent liked New Jersey.



Many New Jersey residents were shocked by the news.



Mike Patterson from Metuchen says New Jersey is "just misunderstood, not disliked." He added, "I think we have a wide variety of folks here."



The most liked state according to the survey was Hawaii.
