Christie has a thirteen point lead among men, while Corzine leads by nine points among women voters.  Christie has an eighteen point lead among white voters, while Corzine has a 67% lead among black voters.  The poll has Corzine winning in North Jersey and Christie ahead in Central and South Jersey.

Christie leads among Jets fans, Giants fans and Eagles fans. Corzine leads among Bruce Springsteen fans, even though Christie has been to 120 Springsteen concerts.
