TRENTON, N.J. — In another indication that the New Jersey governor's race will go down to the wire, a new poll finds Gov. Jon Corzine and Republican Chris Christie tied among likely voters at 39 percent each.
The Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey Poll released Tuesday, two weeks before Election Day, has independent Chris Daggett polling at 14 percent.
Poll director Patrick Murray says the latest poll indicates weakening support for Christie, a former federal prosecutor. A Monmouth/Gannett poll released in early August had Christie up by 14 percentage points over the Democratic incumbent.
The telephone poll of 1,004 likely voters was taken Oct. 15-18 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
