Why was it important for states like New Jersey to have a system that allowed for each state to have equal representation in the national government? Because New Jersey did not want to compromise with slave states Because New Jersey favored the federal government over the states Because New Jersey had fewer delegates at the Constitutional Convention Because New Jersey did not have a large population

Well if you look at NJ and states like it, you can see it is small compared to other states.. and if representatives were based on populations then control would be given to the bigger populated states. So it's because NJ did not have a big population. And the New Jersey Plan ( ) was born. Sorry for the late response too, was afk :)
