Three is a crowd in New Jersey according to Public Policy Polling. Their latest poll in New Jersey shows Independent candidate Chris Daggett getting 13% of the vote.
When you dig deeper into the poll only 47% of Daggett’s 13% said they are absolutely going to vote for him on election day; that would still be better than five percent. If either one of the “major” candidates could add five percent to their vote total they would likely win.
Public Policy Polling says Daggett is likely hurting Republican Chris Christie more than Democrat incumbent Governor Jon Corzine.
