A Suffolk University poll conducted Oct. 22-25 breaks away from the pack of recent New Jersey polls, which have all shown a close race, and says Gov. Jon Corzine is leading Republican Chris Christie by a comfortable 42 percent to 33 percent with independent Chris Daggett (who had for the first time notched 20 percent in a survey last week) now at 7 percent. Fourteen percent are undecided. The margin of error is 5 points.

Suffolk said Daggett may be suffering from the way the New Jersey ballot is set up, placing his name at different spots, depending on the county.

"Independent Chris Daggett struggles to be found on the ballot, which benefits Jon Corzine, whose campaign is peaking at the right time for him," said Suffolk's David Paleologos.

Seventy-two percent of voters said their minds were made up, while 24 percent said they might change their minds. Both Christie and Corzine voters were in that range, but only 56 percent of Daggett voters said they were definitely going to vote for him.

Among undecided voters, 25 percent said they would vote for Corzine if they had to make up their minds right now, 15 percent named Christie and 2 percent named Daggett. Fifty-five percent remain uncommitted.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
