Posted at 12:01 am October 23, 1996, in Earlier Press Releases and Polls, Rutgers-Eagleton Poll

With about two weeks until Election Day. there are still about 1-in-4 registered New Jersey voters who are deciding on their choice for President. Among registered New Jersey voters who say they will not change their minds before Election Day, Clinton is ahead of Dole by a margin of 47 to 23 percent which is a slight increase for Clinton since September and about the same support for Dole. When voters who have made a choice but might change their mind before Election Day are included. Clinton leads Dole 55 to 28 percent. However, in a foreshadowing of the potential volatility of New Jersey’s uncommitted voters there was some shifting of support before and after the October 16 debate. Among the 403 voters interviewed before the debate, Doles support among the voters who made a choice was 31 percent and Clinton was at 50 percent. However, in the interviews conducted following the debate. Dole had support from 25 percent of the voters and Clinton’s support was at 59 percent.
