Poll: Christie Ahead Just Narrowly In NJ

The pollster's analysis suggests that New Jersey's fundamental Democratic partisanship could shift this race back to Corzine: "The Republican brand continues to be an anchor for Christie in the state. The Republican Party's favorability rating remains decidedly negative, with just 32 percent of New Jersey voters rating it favorably against 43 percent who give it a negative rating. On the generic state legislative ballot, the Democratic candidates hold an 8-point edge on the Republicans, 45 to 37 percent."
