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.

I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
