Christie Pulls Ahead in New Jersey

Republican Chris Christie has pulled ahead of Democrat Jon Corzine in the New Jersey race for governor, according to the most recent Public Policy Poll (PPP).  Christie is up by 6 and leads Corzine 47 - 41%, with independent candidate Chris Daggett at 11%.  Daggett's supporters appear to be breaking for Christie.

PPP also shows Republican Doug Hoffman leading Democrat Bill Owens by a comfortable margin in the New York District 23 congressional election, 54 - 38%.  However, with a special election and an expected low turnout, anything can happen, particularly in light of dramatic developments in the last four days of the campaign.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell has a double digits lead over Democrat R. Creigh Deeds in Virginia and is expected to win.

With any luck we will have a trifecta on Tuesday -- all three races could be won by Republicans, sending a clear message to the Obama administration as well as the RNC.
