According to a Quinnipiac University poll released today, Democratic incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine has cut Republican challenger Christopher Christie's lead in half and now trails the former federal prosecutor 43 - 39 percent among New Jersey likely voters. Independent candidate Christopher Daggett has 12 points, with 6 percent undecided. This compares to a 47 - 37 percent Christie lead, with 9 percent for Daggett, in a September 1 survey.
It seems the "knight in shining armor" luster on Christie has worn off. Beyond the poll, here is recent video that shows all we need to know about Christie.
