The new Fox News poll for the Garden State Governor’s race (Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R); 9/17-19; 804 NJ registered voters) finds Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno closing the gap between she and former US Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy (D), but the separation margin is still very significant. According to the new results, Mr. Murphy’s lead is 42-29%. By a margin of 62-37%, the respondents believe the state is on the wrong track, and site taxes as the number one issue of concern (34%). Ms. Guadagno is concentrating all of her negative ads on Murphy’s statements indicating that he will raise taxes. The election is scheduled for November 7th. Incumbent Gov. Chris Christie (R) is ineligible to seek a third term.
