NEW BRUNSWICK – The proposed merger of Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University continues to have strong opposition, according to the latest Rutgers-Eagleton Poll.

Fifty-nine percent of registered voters oppose the merger, 19 percent support it, and 22 percent are unsure, according to a new poll released today.

A poll in February showed similar results: 57 percent against, 22 percent for the merger.

“Those working toward the merger have apparently not made their case to New Jerseyans over the past six weeks,” poll Director David Redlawsk, a professor of political science at Rutgers University, said in a release. “We’ve seen virtually no movement despite the very public debate on the issue.”
