How do you leave Chris Daggett out of a poll in this race, at this point in the cycle? – – promoted by Rosi
Rasmussen came out with a new poll that has Chris Christie at 47 percent, Corzine at 36 percent.
A new Rasmussen Reports survey of voters in the Garden State finds Christie, a former federal prosecutor, on top 47% to 36%. Those figures reflect a decline of three points for Christie and a single point for Corzine over the past three weeks. Seven percent (7%) now prefer some other candidate, and eleven percent (11%) are not sure.
Amazingly the release doesn’t mention Chris Daggett, the independent candidate from Somerset who has polled as high as 10 percent in some polls. I’m fairly sure that the poll didn’t mention it to the respondents either.
When Daggett is mentioned in other polls the results are significantly closer, whether the polls are done by Republicans (albeit Lonegan supporters) or Demcorats (albeit the Corzine campaign).
Daggett is qualifying for public funds, is polling in double digits in some instances, significantly impacts polls when he is included, and yet Rasmussen and others don’t bother to mention him in the questions.
