While President Bill Clinton still leads former Senator Bob Dole 45 to 34 percent, there has been a 10 percentage point decline in the Presidents support since the poll conducted in mid-October. In addition, President Clinton who has had support for re-election among a majority of New Jersey voters since February, now finds the state’s likely voters reconsidering him as their choice to lead the country for the next four years. Forty-six percent of likely voters say that the President deserves re election which is a 10 percentage point decline since the mid-October poll.
