In a hypothetical match-up, Doug Forrester would lose to Acting Gov. Codey but would best former Gov. McGreevey.
This is not surprising. I like Acting Gov. Codey (I nearly cried after his budget address, I so wanted to vote for this man!) Forrester beat McGreevey by nine points. Since McGreevey resigned under a massive scandal after having had an administration beset by corruption and scandal after scandal, you'd think Doug could do better than nine points. Not a good sign.
The last Star Ledger/Eagleton poll (9/12) has Sen. Jon Corzine ahead of Forrester, 49% to 31%.
