Gov. Jon Corzine has an upside-down 38%-53% approval rating and upside-down favorable of 37%-51%, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released this morning. Among likely Democratic primary voters, Corzine is winning just 65% of the vote against three minor candidates, with 20% of voters still undecided about voting for Corzine in the Democratic primary.
"The good news for Gov. Jon Corzine is that he may have hit bottom and stopped his slide. Once the primary is over, Corzine will put on his million-dollar golden gloves and start to fight," Richards added. "Independent voters are the key to this race and by a 2-1 margin they don't like the job Corzine is doing. But all Corzine has to do is win back half the Democrats now voting for Christie and he is back in the race."
Jeff Boss, who claims to have witnessed the federal government planning the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and Phillipsburg businessman Roger Bacon, who designs coffee mugs, are at 5%. Former Glen Ridge Mayor Carl Bergmanson is at 4%.
