NEW JERSEY — What would you do if the election for president were held now?
How would you live?
And who would you vote for?
Here are some of the people in the Granite State who would make the cut.
New Jerseyans are divided over who they want to be president.
The 2016 race has been billed as a choice between two former rivals for the White House, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but a growing number of New Jerseyans appear to have made up their minds.
Some of them say they’re undecided.
And some say they are leaning toward Trump.
But not all of them are.
Some are sticking with Trump.
One woman is sticking with him, but she’s not voting for him, her husband said.
And one man, who asked to be identified only by his first name, told NBC News that he thinks Trump will win.
But other New Jersey voters say they have no idea what to make of their neighbors.
They all say they like each other and that the only thing that’s bothering them is the election.
For some of them, the issue isn’t whether they like Trump or Clinton.
It’s whether they want their children to grow up to be like their neighbors, said Joe D’Angelo, a retired real estate agent from the city of New Brunswick.
D’Angelo and his wife, Sharon, are both Democrats.
They voted for Clinton in the 2016 election.
But he says he wants to see Trump become president and says he won’t vote for him again.
He said he feels like his children are going to have a different life from what they have.
“I think it’s really important to be aware of the fact that this country has been hijacked by these two people,” D’Alfonsino said.
“I don’t think they should be running for president.”
For others, it’s more about the people around them.
This is the first time I’ve ever heard a person say, ‘I don,t want to vote for Donald Trump,’ said Steve Langer, a retiree from Newark.
Langer, who said he’s not going to vote in the general election, said he supports Clinton, but believes that Trump’s supporters don’t represent all of America.
“They’re all very well-educated, well-connected, they’re all pretty well-to-do, they want a job, they don’t have much time, they like the same things,” Langer said.
But he said he believes the Republican Party’s platform would be good for America.
Lander also said he doesn’t think Clinton’s campaign is sincere.
He’s heard some Clinton supporters talk about how she’s just a politician who’s been in politics for a long time.
“We’ve been here before, so we know who she’s really against,” Lander said.
He thinks a Republican president will get the job done.
Langer and others are concerned that their neighbors’ views on the candidates are shifting.
New Brunswick’s resident is one of the most educated voters in the state.
He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is married with three children.
“The people who aren’t voting are not the people who are voting for Trump.
It’s just their own preferences,” Lager said.
The Trump campaign says it’s doing everything possible to get New Jerseyers to vote.
But some residents in Granite City and other areas are not convinced.
In recent days, some residents have been getting letters from voters who say they don,ts want to cast a ballot.
One person said he got a letter from a person who said that he’s a “disillusioned” Trump supporter who thinks Clinton is “more qualified.”
The person said the letter was addressed to the Granites.
A Trump spokesperson declined to comment.
The Granites also have one of America’s most liberal cities: Newark, where the Republican mayor, Cory Booker, and Democratic state Rep. Jim McGinty, have clashed on issues such as education and abortion.
Granite City has been hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.
A federal judge ordered the city to reopen its schools on Oct. 1.
The mayor and McGintys both have vowed to keep their promises.
Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said his administration is working with other states and other cities to help residents prepare for the election and avoid the kinds of problems that caused the flooding in the city last year.
The state has spent $300 million in flood relief efforts in the region, including $75 million for schools and $50 million for flood-prone neighborhoods, Baraka’s office said.
The state also will help the city with the rebuilding of its sewer system, he said.
