Incumbent New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine may have a tough time in his reelection bid next year. According to a new Quinnipiac survey, Gov. Jon Corzine (D)
leads U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie (R), 42% to 36% among
registered voters. Additionally, more than half of registered voters in New Jersey (51% to 37%) say that the Democrat does not deserve to be reelected.

PollTrack Election Watch
Election 2008 was just the beginning of our new website. In the two
weeks following the election, we will provide comprehensive analysis on
how things turned out and why as well as voter, political, and cultural
reaction to the election. Starting in mid-November, we plan a range of
coverage--including continuation of Voices on the Ground, our page where voters speak their minds and serve as our eyes and ears, and Writing on the Wallour
page for analysis, opinion, and debate in both national and local
contexts. On these pages we will cover the transition of the new
congress, inaugural events, and local reactions to the new president as
well as the way political and
cultural events of 2009 impact on voters. Tracking the Nation on our homepage will continue to chart a range of data about the state of the nation. And on our new page, Tracking the Nation Map and Blog, PollTrack Political
Director, Maurice Berger, will offer daily updates on voter reactions
to the transition and inauguration of the new president and
administration as well as local initiatives, referendums, elections,
and special elections (e.g.
vacated congressional seats) of 2009--providing analysis of the state
of these races on the ground as well as ongoing poll averages, from the
campaign for mayor and other citywide offices in
New York City and Los Angeles to the Governor's race in New Jersey.
This page will also have a national map and chart that will allow
visitors to track analysis for each state as well as the polling
averages for 2009 races and ballot initiatives. We will look at the
approval ratings, the implications of special and scheduled elections,
and other "on the ground" markers of success for the new administration.
And next fall, PollTrack will be up and running with our comprehensive coverage of the national cycle in 2010, US Senate Map and House Chart Map and Blog--with
maps, polling averages, charts, and an ongoing blog by our political
director on all of the key races, including all competitive US Senate
and House elections to Governor's races and other local elections.
