N.J. voters frown on the ban on smiling for driver’s license photos, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released today.
They disapprove 62-17 percent on the prohibition, the poll showed.
The strongest call for the right to smile, 69–15 percent, is among voters making more than $250,000 per year, the independent Quinnipiac poll found.
On another issue, the poll showed that respondents back 72-21 percent a proposed law that would give towns more say over filming of so-called reality TV shows.
Even voters 18 to 34 years old support the proposal 73–25 percent. Voter opinion of “Jersey Shore,” the polarizing show that made celebrities out of Snooki and her friends and which prompted the proposal, is unfavorable 66–8 percent. The show is in its last season.
“New Jersey voters are smiling to see the last of Snooki and her crew. They think ‘Jersey Shore’ was bad for the state and they think towns should have more power to keep ‘Real Housewives’ and other reality TV under control,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, in a release.
From Oct. 10–14, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,405 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.
Dissed by Gov. Chris Christie, New York Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino said Christie should consider stepping down from his post as chairman of the Republican Governors Assocation.Read More >

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
