Another poll out today finds Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine closing the gap on Republican challenger Chris Christie in the New Jersey governor’s race.

Forty-three percent of likely voters in the Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey Poll out Thursday favored Christie, 40 percent Corzine and 8 percent independent Chris Daggett. The 3-point difference is within the poll’s sampling error margin of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.

Corzine’s disadvantage is down from 14 percentage points in August.

A Quinnipiac Poll released Wednesday found similar erosion of Christie’s margin. Christie led 43 percent to 39 percent among likely voters. A Sept. 1 poll had Christie up by 10 percentage points.

The Monmouth/Gannett poll surveyed 527 likely voters from Sept. 24-29.

The election for New Jersey Governor will be held on Nov. 3.

New Corzine Video: "True"

The latest campaign video put out by the Corzine campaign is titled “True” and it debunks Chris Christie’s accusations that the Corzine campaign ads have distorted his record on health care mandates and shows how Christie has been deceitful with the voters of New Jersey.

As the Star-Ledger recently highlighted, Corzine’s ad “happens to be true” and Christies own website shows that he would allow insurance companies to drop mammogram coverage. By siding with the health insurance companies over the health of New Jersey women, Christie continues to be wrong when it matters most.
