Fairleigh Dickinson University surveyed the New Jersey electorate in advance of the state’s November 7th gubernatorial election and unsurprisingly found the same basic result that all other pollsters have determined. The poll (10/11-15; 658 NJ likely voters pulled from a registered voters list complete with voter history) projects former US Ambassador to Germany and Wall Street executive Phil Murphy (D) leading Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R), 47-33%. Again, Gov. Chris Christie’s unpopularity is a factor. Only 16% of those sampled gave the Governor a positive rating, with 43% saying he is a “major” factor in this election. Within this latter subset, 79% say they support Mr. Murphy.
