MTV runaway reality hit the “Jersey Shore” is a thorn in the side of the Garden State, according to a recent Quinnipiac University poll.

New Jersey voters, including young people, say 3 to 1 that they don’t want Snooki and the rest of the Shore cast filming in their home state.

Hoboken, New Jersey’s decision to deny permits for “Jersey Shore” filming has been disproportionately backed by Jersey voters — 70 to 16 percent, including 70 to 19 percent among voters under 50. And 69 percent of voters polled agree that “Jersey Shore” filming is bad for Frank Sinatra’s home town.

“Voters think Hoboken was right to tell Snooki and her friends to perform somewhere else,” Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute said.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,396 registered voters with a polling margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
