Independent New Jersey Gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett needs a feather boa, his polling numbers look like former Minnsota Governor Jesse Ventura’s numbers. That’s the take from Aaron Blake writing on TheHill.com.
Blake writes, “New polling shows the independent New Jersey Governor candidate is about where former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura (I) was at this point in his 1998 race…”
Blakes cites a Rutgers/Eagleton poll that has Chris Daggett polling at 20 percent, which is his best showing yet. Blake writes, “By comparison, Ventura's initial bump in polling registered in a Minneapolis Star Tribune poll conducted Oc.t 15-18, which showed him at 21 percent.”
To throw a little water on the fire, Blake writes Daggett has to close a 5% larger gap than Ventura. But, the votes are not cast yet.
