Christie narrowly widens lead

 By: tmthforu94 (D-MO) - 2009-10-27 @ 17:00:58

Raleigh, N.C. – After his lead was reduced to a single point in a Public Policy Polling
survey two weeks ago, Chris Christie has now widened his advantage to four.
Christie’s at 42% in the newest poll to 38% for Jon Corzine and 13% for Chris Daggett.
Earlier in the race it had appeared that Daggett was hurting Christie more, but now
supporters of the independent candidate say by a 44-32 margin that their second choice
would be Corzine. 43% of voters planning to support him are Democrats while only 9%
are Republicans.
The shift in where Daggett’s support is coming from is likely a result of the negative ads
Chris Christie’s campaign has run against him. Where his favorability rating was a
positive 30/24 two weeks ago it’s now a negative 31/36, and the climb in people rating
him unfavorably has come largely among Republicans.
Corzine has some room to grow in the final week. For instance he’s getting just 67% of
the black vote and 53% of the Hispanic vote, both less than Democrats usually get and
places where last second visits from Barack Obama could help him improve his standing.
60% of voters see Corzine unfavorably to 33% positively. For Christie it’s a nearly even
split with 45% holding a favorable opinion of him to 44% negative.
