One-day poll right after an election.  Obviously, you know what I think of those.  Wink

Nonetheless...

NJ Governor's Race
 
Survey of 500 Likely Voters

June 8, 2005 
New Jersey Governor
 
Corzine (D) 47%
Forrester (R) 40%
Other 5%
 
      June 8, 2005--On the first day of New Jersey's General Election campaign, Democrat Jon Corzine leads Republican Doug Forrester by seven percentage points in the race for Governor.

Corzine attracts 47% of the vote to 40% for Forrester. Five percent (5%) of voters say they will opt for some other candidate while 8% are not sure.

Forrester may be enjoying a modest bounce following his victory in Tuesday's primary. During Election 2004, John Kerry temporarily gained a few points following each victory in a competitive primary.

Corzine is viewed favorably by 42% of New Jersey voters and unfavorably by 36%. The numbers for Forrester are 38% favorable and 28% unfavorable.

Former Governor Jim McGreevey, who resigned last year, may be having an impact on the current race. He is viewed favorably by 32% of New Jersey voters and unfavorably by 53%. Democrats are evenly divided.

Among Democrats with an unfavorable opinion of McGreevey, just 63% will vote for Corzine. Twenty-six percent (26%) say they will vote for Forrester. Among other Democrats, Corzine leads 81% to 7%.

McGreevey definitely hurt the Democratic party in NJ.  Although he shouldn't have, some people are really stupid enough to take this to heart and nail the whole party as a result.  This is similar to John Street and NE Philly, but I'll post another thread about that one.  It seems scandals rock the Democratic party harder than the Republicans.

These are not great numbers after an event with significant positive media coverage. But we'll see.

A waste of a poll, in any case.

My opinion exactly.  Think of it as being the same as the Gallup poll showing Kerry up 12 after his winning of the nomination, except this poll shows Forrester with hardly any bounce at all.  Not a good sign, imo.

Actually it's because Democrats, particularly those of the NJ variety, are extremely corrupt-- far more than Republicans. McGreevey was just another example of that corruption, plus tapes came out recently with top DNC officials in NJ laughing about how they "own" even the rich Corzine.
