WABC-TV poll: Dead heat in race for governor — Christie 41%, Corzine 39%, Daggett 19%

A WABC-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA has the race for Governor in a statistical dead heat among likely voters: Republican Christopher Christie leads Gov. Jon Corzine 41%-39%. Christopher Daggett, one of ten independent candidates, is at 19%.

Last week, SurveyUSA had Christie ahead 40%-39%, with Daggett at 14%..

“SurveyUSA’s tracking graphs are flat. Corzine has not polled more than 40% nor less than 39%. Christie has not polled more than 43% nor less than 40%. Of likely 2009 voters who voted for Corzine in 2005, just 60% stick with him today. 18% of 2005 Corzine voters today cross over to Republican Christie; 21% vote for the Independent,” SurveyUSA said in their poll analysis.

Christie leads 40%-38%-20% in North Jersey, 46%-40%-13% in Central Jersey, and 38%-38%-22% in South Jersey.

The October 19-21 poll of 674 likely voters has a margin of error of +/- 3.9%.
