New Jerseyans are squaring up after a recent survey ranked the Garden State the 48th worst in America.

YouGov asked 1,211 adult Americans to choose the better of two states (including Washington D.C) in a series of head-to-head matchups in mid-March.

States were rated based on their “win percentage," or how often that state won the head-to-head matchup when it was one of the two states shown. 

The Garden State came in just before just before Mississippi and Alabama -- and residents are trying to figure out why.

"It's not our fault Jersey smells so bad and is a state of endless tolls."
