A Monmouth University/Gannett poll released this morning closely mirrors the results of the Quinnipiac poll released yesterday.
The poll indicates that Chris Christie's lead over Jon Corzine has evaporated to 3%, 43-40, with 8% for Chris Daggett among likely voters. Among registered voters, the race is tied at 40-40.
Corzine's mammogram scare ads have worked. His gains have come primarily from Independent woman. Corzine also picks up support from Democrats who are more likely to vote now than they were in earlier surveys.
Property taxes remain the main issue on voters minds. Yet, only 20% of the voters say they have heard a specific proposal to deal with the issue from the candidates. 4/5's of polling data was collected before Daggett revealed his plan. 32% of the responding likely voters said they would be more likely to vote for Christie if he promised to deal with property taxes.
