Survey - N.J. Voters Say No To Eminent Domain: WCBS-TV, New York NY, 11/13/06

Most New Jersey voters surveyed dislike the ability of government to take land for redevelopment.

Today's Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll asked respondents to consider four scenarios under which local and state governments might seize property. None was supported by a majority of respondents.

Nearly half of those polled would support replacing "dilapidated properties" with better housing and shops. Only two in seven say it's acceptable to raze houses and shops for a new school.

The survey was sponsored by the New Jersey Farm Bureau.
