Poll: Corzine catches Christie in gov's race

October 6, 2009 4:52:45 AM PDT
A new poll finds the top two candidates for New Jersey governor running nearly even.

The Fairleigh Dickinson University-PublicMind Poll out Tuesday has Gov. Jon Corzine at 44 percent, Republican challenger Chris Christie at 43 percent. The difference is within the poll's margin of error.

A September poll had Christie ahead, 47-42 percent.

The new poll finds 54 percent have an unfavorable view of Corzine, the same as last month. Forty-two percent now have an unfavorable opinion of Christie, up from 35 percent in September.

Four percent volunteered that they support independent Chris Daggett. But Daggett's support climbs to 17 percent when his name is read with the other two.

The poll of 667 likely voters was conducted Sept. 28-Oct. 5 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
