Jerseyans unsure about summer ’20 trip to Jersey Shore, poll says

By David Wildstein, April 27 2020 10:00 am

New Jerseyans are still uncertain whether they will visit the Jersey Shore this summer, according to a Monmouth University poll released this morning.

Almost six out of ten state residents (58%) said that had planned a Jersey shore trip – including 7% who own a shore home – but just under half (51%) are doubtful that they will keep those plans.

Of the New Jersey residents polled, 15% said they planned to spend a week or more at the shore, awhile 36% stated their intention was day trips or weekends.  Nearly four out of ten (37%) said they had no plans for a shore excursion yet.

“Going down the shore is one of those defining features of being a New Jerseyan. Whether or not we can keep those plans this year will say a lot about how quickly the state can get on the road to recovery,” said Patrick Murray, the director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

The Monmouth University Poll was conducted from April 16-19 and has a margin of error of +/-3.7%.
