(CNN) - The gubernatorial race in New Jersey continues to tighten, a new survey out Thursday suggests.
A Monmouth University/Gannett poll shows Republican challenger Chris Christie's edge over Democratic incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine is down to 3 percentage points among likely voters, 43 to 40 percent - an advantage that now falls within the survey's 4 point sampling error.
Christie held an 8-point lead in a similar poll a month ago and a 14-point lead in August.
Christie, a former U.S. attorney, appears to be losing some voters to independent candidate Chris Daggett, who at 8 percent in the latest survey has doubled his support since August.
The poll surveyed 527 likely voters from September 24-29 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Good, I hope the Democratic nominee wins.
"...among LIKELY voters"???
How about a poll of ACTUAL REGISTERED VOTERS
Pretty funny but sadly true. How can people in NJ put up with Corzine??
I guess the Republican party shouldn't have snubbed Lonegan because Christie was "more electable." Way to vote for someone who had no platform only to find he's not the eminently electable guy you thought he was.
NEW JERSEY – just like the state of VIRGINIA will remain BLUE!!!!
CASE in POINT!!!
You need to come to my neighborhood or call my number and others like me – on my level – and about the same things I am about – and take YOUR POLLS!!! YOU DON"T which is why it's difficult to predict who will win and the reason why POLLS FAIL!!!
You can't go right with this vote.
Uh Oh GOP. Looks like the lies and hate-speech is starting to catch up with you. Normal people in this country are on to the act and are getting pretty sick of it!
Just goes to show that despite what people say about negative advertising, IT WORKS!
People of NJ: are you better off than you were 4 years ago? Is your state less of a laughing stock?
I cannot for the life of me understand how NJ residents, given the sorry state of their state, could possibly re-elect Mr. Conehead.
But hey... it's their state, and their problem. Some state has to be the laughing stock of the nation, and it might as well be NJ.
Just say, "No!" to Spiro Christie.
The vote is going to come down to this – which candidate do people hate the least.
I love the Democrats who fight for the middle class and less fortunate!!!
Go Corzine!!!! You've got to win.!!!!!!!
Another Republican that would like S.S. to go away or be privatized-same thing. Not in favor of S.S. Unemployment, Medicare, although
they ACT like they care to KILL the PUBLIC OPTION!
And I am from Illinois and I have become of some suspicians about
Shimkus, who gets a free ride every election in Illinois. No to Reps.
I'm backing Corzine!
Your poll is wrong!
Democrats will remain in control of Jersey!
Take that to the bank and cash it!
Uh oh. I bet Christie's jowels don't like these new numbers.
If the people of NJ can't wake up, they deserve everything they get.
I can't believe anyone ever believed New Jersey would elect that lying, cheating oaf. I grew up in Jersey. Most New Jerseyans are pretty smart. No one's happy about the current state of things so expressing displeasure is to be expected...but no way they would take it out by making things WORSE!
No more Republicans!
