Chris Daggett, the independent gubernatorial candidate in New Jersey, is boldly declaring that Republican Chris Christie can’t win.
“It’s either going to be Jon Corzine or me,” Daggett told The Associated Press, adding that Christie’s campaign “has gone backward since June.”
Christie had previously led Corzine by significant margins in all the polls, but the race has now become neck and neck in most polls. During this whole period, Corzine’s support has remained roughly the same, in the high-30’s/low-40’s range. Christie has been losing support, with Daggett gaining voters from both columns.
