An October poll of Jersey City voters commissioned by Hoboken Councilwoman Beth Mason in advance of Hudson County 2013 elections shows incumbent Jersey City Mayor Jeremiah Healy receiving 23.9% of the vote, followed by state Sen. Sandra Cunningham (D-31) with 13.6%, downtown Councilman Steve Fulop 12.9%, and Assemblyman Sean Connors 4.2%.
Forty-five point four percent of those polled said they were undecided on a candidate.
Only Healy and Fulop are declared candidates at this point.
The challenger, Fulop, has outraised the incumbent mayor and outperformed his candidates in local elections, including November’s Ward F election.
The Mason-commissioned poll of 403 registered voters shows Healy with a net favorable rating of 56.2%.
Cunningham has a 60.7% favorable rating, Fulop 35%, and Connors 29.2%.
Asked about Healy’s job performance, 43.1% of respondents said “good,” and 49% said “not good.”
The poll also shows Gov. Chris Christie with a 36.1% favorability rating in Jersey City against 44% unfavorable.
