Tuesday's election will once again pit the divergent polling results of Rutgers-Eagleton against Monmouth University.
Today's Rutgers Eagleton poll of the givernor's race shows incumbent Republican Gov. Chris Christie with a huge lead over Democratic challenger Barbara Buono.
The 36-point margin anticipates the possibility of the governor producing coattails that could create down-ballot legislative wins for Republican candidates.
Monmouth's poll also shows Christie soundly defeating Buono, but by a closer 20-point margin.
During the U.S. Senate special election, Monmouth's final pre-election day poll showed the race a 10-point contest with Democrat Cory Booker beating Republican Steve Lonegan.
In its final poll, Rutgers showed Booker beating Lonegan by over 20 points.
Monmouth predicted the actual result.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
