Mar 15, 2017

Three months before New Jersey’s primary election, a new poll shows that many residents are unsure about who they want to replace Governor Chris Christie.

23 percent of registered Democrats surveyed in a Quinnipiac University poll say they plan to vote for former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy in the primary. All the other Democrats in the race have single digit support.

On the Republican side Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno (gwah-DON-no) leads with 28 percent, a 10 point advantage over comedian Joe Piscopo who has not declared his candidacy.

57 percent of Democrats and 42 percent of Republicans say they’re still undecided on who to select as their party’s nominee. Most voters say they don’t enough about any of the candidates to form an opinion.

In a general election matchup Murphy leads Guadagno 47-to-25 percent with 25 percent undecided.
