Let’s take a look at the latest polls:
Source: Richmond Times.
Bob McDonnel (R) ___ 53%
Creigh Dedds (D) ___ 41%
Undecided voters ___ 6%
The polls of 625 likely voters, has a margin of error of +/- 4%. Of those asked, only 42% have a favorable view of the incumbent governor, and that rate exceeds his favorable view. On the other hand 51% have a favorable view of the Republican candidate Bob McDonnell.

Chris Christie (R) ___ 43%
Jon Corzine (D) ___ 42%
Chris Daggett (I) ___ 8%
The independent candidate isn’t such an important factor on the race as he was on the last couple of weeks, and his voters seem to be drifting toward Christie. And Christie is doing very well, being New Jersey a very blue state, where a Republican hasn’t won an election since 1993, a year before the Conservative Revolution.
The poll of 1041 likely voters has a margin of error of +/- 3%. Of those asked only 35% approve of the way the current governor, Corzine, is handling his job.
