FHQ is going to go with a Twitter-like, quickie post of the events of the day in both Virginia and New Jersey.
Like in Virginia, the polling in New Jersey maintained the status quo in this race.
The new Quinnipiac poll today mirrored the PPP poll from yesterday except that the two major party candidates traded positions
There was an interesting discussion about the difference between polls based on live interviews or a recording over the phone.
Phone polls are showing Christie ahead. Interviews favor Corzine.
|2009 New Jersey Gubernatorial Race Polling|
|Poll||Date||Margin of Error||Sample||Corzine||Christie||Daggett||Undecided|
|Quinnipiac||Oct. 20-26, 2009||+/- 2.8%||1267 likely voters||43||38||13||5|
Still, this poll represents a six point gain for Corzine over the last Quinnipiac poll two weeks ago.
Unlike yesterday's PPP poll though, this one showed Daggett supporters opting for Christie over Corzine by a 43-27 count.
The PPP count of Daggett supporters found Corzine had the advantage 44-32. Again, there's a difference in poll type there.
As I said, this one merely maintained the state of the race from a day ago. Here at FHQ that means Christie is slightly ahead.
