Sharon, of Center of NJ Life, recently attended a Corzine for governor rally. The interesting part of the post came when she admitted that it had been her first political rally. Fortunately, according to her commentary, it was a pretty good one, as any event with former president Bill Clinton would be. However, is Corzine truly worthy of one of Sharon's rare attendences? Is Corzine that inspiring, or are the Republicans simply that repugnant?
Either way, New Jersey voters seem oddly excited about Jon Corzine, a candidate who seems to be playing it pretty safe with the rhetoric lately. He leads by 10% in the latest polls and his unsatisfactory performance at the first debate hasn't seemed to harm him greatly.
What's more puzzling still is that New Jersey voters are generally unhappy with the state of their government. Only 50% of Democrats identified New Jersey as being on the right track, and only 32% of Independents and 27% of Republicans agreed.
These research firms should poll what percentage of each group hates Doug Forrester and the Republican Party. That seems to be the big number that is keeping the GOP out of Trenton.
