A majority of New Jersey residents oppose Gov. Christie’s plan to overhaul the state’s public universities, according to a new poll.

In the statewide survey, conducted last week by Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics, 57 percent of respondents said they were against Christie’s proposal; 22 percent said they were for it.

The question referred to Christie’s proposal in general but singled out his controversial proposal to merge Rutgers-Camden into Rowan University. It did not specifically mention other aspects of the plan, including the merger of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School into Rutgers.
