A Quinnipiac University poll released today shows that New Jersey voters associates political corruption more with Democrats (50%) than with Republicans (15%). Nearly two-third of New Jerseyans say the recent wave of arrests of public officials embarrasses them, while one-third says it does not.
Even though most of the political figures arrested last month were Democrats, voters don’t seem to hold the Democratic Governor accountable. Just 28% say the arrests make them less likely to support Jon Corzine’s bid for a second term. 67% of voters said the arrests would not make them less likely to back Corzine.
