A WABC-TV/SurveyUSA poll shows Republican Christopher Christie leading Gov. Jon Corzine by three percentage points, 45%-42%, with independent Christopher Daggett at 10%.
Given the dates the poll was conducted, SurveyUSA said the results should be “interpreted cautiously.”
“On 2 of the 3 nights, much of NJ was home watching local teams play in the World Series. And: 1 of the 3 nights was Halloween, when families with children are home in uniquely large numbers. As such, results of this survey should be interpreted cautiously: a narrow Corzine victory is not inconsistent with the data, but a narrow Christie win is more consistent with the data,” wrote the pollster.
The poll of 528 likely voters was conducted October 30-November 1 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.1%.
A Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research poll of 606 likely voters conducted for Democratic strategist James Carville’s Democracy Corps shows Cozine leading Christie 41% to 37%, with independent Christopher Daggett getting 15%.
The Democracy Corps poll, which was conducted between October 29 and November 1, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%.
