TRENTON -- The latest poll in the race to succeed Chris Christie as New Jersey's governor shows Democratic nominee Phil Murphy with a commanding 27-point lead over Republican nominee Kim Guadagno -- though a majority of voters continue to say they don't know much about either candidate.
The Monmouth University Poll, released Wednesday, found 53 percent of Garden State voters would choose Murphy, a former U.S. ambassador to Germany, while 26 percent would pick Guadagno, the state's lieutenant governor.

Jersey is a lost cause.
Christie screwed the pooch. Big time.
Christie IS the pooch, with a lower IQ.
If Sessions has any pending case against Bob Menendez, he’d better wrap it up soon. Fatso could still appoint a temporary GOP Senator before November.
Theres room for skepticism when a poll favors a Democrat. Just ask Karen Handel.
Christie lost it. Stupid RINO.
It’s another poll......and we all know how accurate they are....,just ask President CLinton lol
The poll is probably accurate. Kim Guadagno probably couldn’t win in November if she ran unopposed.
Christie has all but given Drumthwacket to the Dems..
Murphy's election will take NJ back as far left as a state could be. His proposed constitutional amendment to require funding of the pension fund will cause property taxes to skyrocket. In addition, the DEP has been sitting on new regulations for 8 years just waiting for a DEM to get back in the statehouse.
As unpopular and self serving as Christie was, he actually was so much better than any Dem would have been. Our family business was about to be regulated out of business just before he was elected. His red tape review and reigning in of the DEP allowed us remain in business thru his tenure as Governor. Now, we see the election of Murphy as inevitable and are already preparing to close the business and move South.
Governor Murphy will have folks yearning for the good old days of Chris Christie.
There are rarely surprises in NJ; why should 2017 be any different? People there have a fondness for taxation on the high side.
You are right, but one can’t speak truth to a Jerseyite; they prefer the lie.
Afraid so. We never learn in this wretched state.
And...? This is New Jersey right? It’s been lost for a long time.
