Chris Christie doing well in early polling against Jon Corzine

First, from Public Policy Polling, which surveyed 1,094 voters between June 27-29, and had a margin of error of +/- 3%:

The first of what will be monthly Public Policy Polling surveys looking at the race for Governor in New Jersey finds Chris Christie leading Jon Corzine 51-41.

Christie is being buoyed by a 60-26 advantage with independent voters and a remarkable degree of party unity, as he leads 93-3 with Republicans. By comparison, Corzine has just a 75-16 edge with Democrats.

There’s not much doubt Christie’s lead is being fueled largely by Corzine’s unpopularity. 56% of voters in the state have a negative opinion of the incumbent, while just 36% view him favorably. For Christie the breakdown is 43% positive and 33% unfavorable.

Next, from Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind poll:

Just one in five voters (21%) say New Jersey is on the right track and, according to the most recent poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind™, Republican Chris Christie continues to lead the Democratic incumbent governor by a margin of 45%-39% in the race for governor. Another 15% say they are unsure. “Even though it’s early in the campaign, it is remarkable that a Republican is running ahead in New Jersey,” said Peter Woolley, a political scientist and director of the poll.

The Fairleigh Dickinson University poll of 803 registered voters statewide was conducted by telephone from June 22, 2009, through June 29, 2009, and has a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.
