More than half of New Jersey's registered voters believed that an internal investigation into the George Washington Bridge scandal known as "Bridegate" was a farce.

According to UPI on April 9, the survey was done by the Polling Institute at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. The poll found that over 96 percent on Garden State voters have herd of the scandal, and 56 percent of those voters believed that the internal investigation, which cleared New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie of any wrongdoing involving the scandal, was a "whitewash."

In contrast, only 36 percent of registered voters believed the internal investigation was legitimate.

Ironically, the poll also found that voters were split on the investigation being led by the Democrats in the state Assembly. 46 percent of voters who responded to the poll said that the investigation was legitimate and the same number of voters believed that the Democrats investigation into the scandal was a "political which hunt."

The poll surveyed 1,356 New Jersey voters.
