Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind poll today shows Gov. Jon Corzine at 43%, Republican Chris Christie at 41% and independent Chris Daggett at 8%.
Corzine’s slight lead over Christie is within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3%.
Poll Director Peter Woolley said that the 8% of Daggett supporters volunteered his name, although the interviewers did ID Daggett before they asked the head-to-head matchup question.
“Voters were reminded of his name before they were asked,” said Woolley.
The pollster dropped the head-to-head question that included Daggett’s name.
The results include those from the last FDU poll, which was released Friday, and include four additional days. On Friday, the poll showed Corzine with a statistically insignificant one point lead over Chrisite, and Daggett at 6% from voters volunteering his name (when Daggett’s name was mentioned, he got 14% of the vote and Christie led Corzine by a statistically insignificant 2% — 41% to 39%).
