Dem Jon Corzine in Some Real Trouble in the Garden States, Trails 51%-38% to Christie in NJ Governors race


Democrat incumbent Governor Jon Corzine is in some real trouble in the Garden State. The latest Rasmussen poll following the primaries shows that Republican Chris Christie enjoys a double-digit lead over Democrat Jon Corzine in the New Jersey Governor’s race, 51% – 38%.  With the present economy, continued job losses and the specter of taxes being raised, it may not be beneficial to be an incumbent Democrat. The same love-fest for Obama does not appear to have coattails.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state shows Christie with 51% of the vote while Corzine is supported by 38%. Last month, before the primary, it was Christie with 47% of the vote and Corzine with 38%. The slight increase in support for Christie may reflect a temporary bounce from his primary victory.

Is it possible that a Republican could win such a blue states as New Jersey? No Republican has won a statewide election in NJ since 1997.

      Once a Chairman and co-CEO of Goldman Sachs.

      This guy has taxed himself out of office.

      Chairman of Goldman Sachs – Corzine is a PART of the national problem, and used that expertise (destroying the fiscal stability of a nation) to wreck even more havoc on New Jersey residents.
