A new Quinnipiac poll shows New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (D) trailing challenger Christopher Christie (R) by ten points, 47% to 37%, among likely voters, with independent Christopher Daggett running third with 9%.
The Q-poll in early August showed Christie leading by just six points.
Meanwhile, a new Fairleigh Dickinson poll shows Christie leading Corzine by five points, 47% to 42% among likely voters. In this case, Daggett was not listed as one of the choices.
Last month’s FDU poll had Christie leading by just four points.
This is very good news; Chrisitie has been outspent and recently attacked on everything from talking to Karl Rove about running for office to getting speeding tickets and it proves to not be working. Daggett still probably hurts Christie more then Corzine though.
