Chris Christie Edges Past Jon Corzine in New Jersey Poll

"Republican challenger Chris Christie is edging ahead of Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine in the New Jersey gubernatorial race, according to a new poll. 

But with the election one day away, the race is still a virtual dead heat. 

The Quinnipiac University poll released Monday showed Christie with a 2-point lead over Corzine. Among likely voters, 42 percent backed Christie and 40 percent backed Corzine. 

Christie's lead is within the margin of error, but marks a gain from a Quinnipiac survey released last week, in which Corzine enjoyed a 5-point lead. 

Independent candidate Chris Daggett is still attracting a sizeable amount of support, with 12 percent backing his candidacy in the latest poll, down from 13 percent a week ago. 

The poll of 1,533 likely voters in New Jersey was taken between Tuesday and Sunday. It had a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points."
