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.
