Fairleigh Dickinson University poll

Nobody likes a toll hike, and people in New Jersey are no different.

A poll taken by Fairleigh Dickinson University shows almost half, 49%, are opposed to the hikes that will take effect after September 13. But the surprise is how many people were in favor of the increase.

75 percent of New Jersey voters surveyed by Fairleigh Dickinson University believe the state should invest more in developing clean energy sources rather than fossil fuels and pipelines.

Tom Gilbert is the campaign director for the advocacy group ReThinkEnergy New Jersey. He says voters are sending a message that they want a change, with 58 percent saying the state is moving too slowing to adopt renewable energy.

A new poll finds that New jersey residents are divided over the benefits of fluoridated water.

Fairleigh Dickinson political science professor Dan Cassino says half of New Jersey's residents believe fluoride in drinking water is a good thing while 34 percent are not convinced.

Cassino says Just 15 percent of Garden State residents receive fluoridated water because most municipal water systems in New Jersey serve multiple communities and any of them can prevent fluoride from being added to the water.
