New Jersey voters don't believe Jon Corzine's campaign is deliberately seeking to make a campaign issue out of Christopher Christie's weight, according to a Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll. Nearly half of the state's likely voters, 47%, say Corzine has not tried to drive the weight issue, while 35% believe he has.

Among likely voters, 4% say Christie's weight makes them more likely to vote for him, 19% say less likely, and 78% say it makes no difference. PPP is a Democratic polling firm based out of North Carolina.
