Two new polls show that the New Jersey gubernatorial race continues to be neck and neck between Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine and Republican former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie.
â¢ In the new Rasmussen poll, respondents' initial preferences were Christie 42%, Corzine 39%, and independent Chris Daggett 12%. After Daggett supporters were asked if they were sure they would vote for him -- along with the process of pushing undecideds who might lean towards a candidate -- the result becomes a Christie lead of 46%-43%-8%, with a Â±3% margin of error.
â¢ The new Stockton College/Zogby poll: Corzine 40%, Christie 39%, and Daggett 14%, with a Â±3% margin of error.
â¢ The new Neighborhood Research (R) poll: Christie 42%, Corzine 35%, Daggett 8%, with a Â±5.3% margin of error.
So which poll, out of these three or any others, should you believe? Keep in mind that a poll with Corzine up by two points is not significantly different from a poll with Christie up by two points, statistically speaking. The vast majority of polls have shown this race to be within just a couple points -- and they're probably right.
