Christie Surges to Huge Lead Over Corzine

Perhaps these bleak poll numbers are a reason why New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine is floating cheesy gimmicks like having an Apprentice winner as his running mate.

Seems his saturating the radio airwaves with ads isn't paying off.
A new poll has the Republican challenger in the New Jersey governor's race widening his lead over Gov. Jon Corzine.

The Quinnipiac University Poll out Tuesday has GOP candidate Chris Christie leading the incumbent Corzine by 53 percent to 41 percent among likely voters.

A June 10 Quinnipiac poll had Christie up by 10 points, 50-40 percent. The most recent polling was done after Corzine signed a $29 billion budget that increased taxes and trimmed tax rebates.
Yet Corzine's ads claim he's cut programs and reduced the state's budget.

If these numbers continue to worsen expect Corzine to start playing the gun and abortion cards, the typical Democrat staples here in New Jersey.

A big win for the GOP in New Jersey would certainly bolster confidence heading into the 2010 midterms and leave Barack Obama and the Democrat agenda hanging by a thread.

Speaking of Obama, his approval index remains at -8% today, a startling 36-point swing in less than six months.
