Corzine Pulls Ahead in New Jersey


A new poll shows New Jersey governor Jon Corzine leading his Republican challenger Christopher Christie for the first time in over a year.

The poll, conducted by Farleigh Dickinson University's PublicMind, showed Corzine one point ahead of Christie among 667 likely voters. Although the poll marks a shift in tone for the embattled incumbent Corzine, it is still well within the margin of error, reports Bloomberg.

"The survey of 667 likely voters shows Corzine leading Christie 44% to 43%. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%, meaning that the difference is not statistically significant. Residents were questioned from September 28 to October 5, coinciding with the candidates' first televised debate, October 1," Bloomberg reported.

Corzine, a former U.S. senator, has pledged to sign marriage equality legislation. Many expect the state legislature to pass a bill in the lame duck session this year following the November general election.
