Republican Christopher Christie has a six point lead over Gov. Jon Corzine, 47%-41%, with independent Christopher Daggett at 11%, according to a new Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey. PPP is a North Carolina-based Democratic polling firm.
Christie’s lead had increased four points last week and one point three weeks ago. He has a 52%-29% lead among independents.
Corzine’s favorables remain upside-down: 34%-57%. Christie is at 43%-42%.
“For most of the last three months the election had moved more and more in Jon Corzine’s direction but it appears that his momentum stopped about three weeks ago,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “As Chris Daggett’s support started to decline Christie’s went back up.”
PPP surveyed 994 likely New Jersey voters on October 31 and November 1. The margin of error is +/- 3.1%.
