Daggett Polling 18% in Latest SurveyUSA Poll

Independent Candidate for Governor Chris Daggett is polling at 18% in the latest SurveyUSA Poll.

In an election for New Jersey Governor today, 10/15/09, 19 days until the vote, Republican Chris Christie and incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine are tied and treading water, according to this latest exclusive WABC-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA.

Chris Daggett is the only candidate with momentum. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released one week ago, Christie is down 3 points, from 43% to 40%; Corzine is down 1 point, from 40% to 39%; Daggett is up 4 points, from 14% to 18%. Daggett was endorsed by the Star-Ledger on Sunday, 10/11, one day before interviewing began for this poll.

Of those who voted for Corzine in 2005, 58% stick with Corzine in 2009 — down from 67% one week ago. 20% of 2005 Corzine voters crossover to Republican Christie in 2009 — up from 17%; 19% vote Daggett, up from 13%.
Of those who voted for Corzine’s 2005 Republican opponent, Doug Forrester, 77% vote for Republican Christie in 2009, down from 82% from last week. 18% vote Daggett, up from 14% one week ago.

Among whites, Christie leads by 14 points, down from 18. Among blacks, Corzine leads 4:1, down from 6:1. Christie, who became the Republican nominee after defeating a more conservative Republican, Steve Lonegan, in the primary, leads 4:1 among Conservatives, unchanged from last week. Corzine leads 4:1 among liberals, also unchanged. Moderates remain divided. Corzine carries Northern Jersey. Christie carries South Jersey. In Central Jersey, where Christie had led by 12, he leads by 3.
