Former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan holds an 8 point lead over incumbent
Governor Jon Corzine, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll released this afternoon.

The poll, commissioned by the television station My9, shows the Governor’s reelection prospects at their weakest so far with Lonegan leading Corzine by eight points, 43% to 35%.

Corzine’s approval ratings are low in the poll, with the largest number of respondents – 42% — strongly disapproving of his job performance. Twenty-four percent of respondents “somewhat disapprove” of Corzine, while 24% “somewhat approve” and eight percent “strongly approve.”

Corzine’s favorability ratings are also upside down, with 54% of respondents either having a “very unfavorable” or “somewhat unfavorable” view of the Governor.

Former Morris County Freeholder Chris Christie was seen favorably by 52% of respondents while Lonegan was seen favorably by 45%. Twenty-four percent of those polled weren’t sure how they felt about Christie, while 34% weren’t sure about Lonegan.
On the budget front, the public does not trust the Governor and state legislature to balance the state budget “in a manner that is good for New Jersey.” Only 33% expressed confidence in that prospect, while 64% said they were not confident.Rasmussen surveyed 500 likely voters on March 10 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5%.

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into freedom
    by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.
    What one person receives without working for,
    another person must work for without receiving.
    The government cannot give to anybody anything
    that the government does not first take from somebody else.
    When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work
    because the other half is going to take care of them,
    and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work
    because somebody else is going to get what they work for,
    that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.
    You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
