Against a backdrop of declining interest in the election, Jim Florio receives support from 47 percent of likely New Jersey voters compared to 38 percent for Christine Todd Whitman. Fifteen percent of the likely voters say that they are undecided about who they will vote for. The latest Star Ledger/Eagleton Poll indicates that being the front runner now may not insure a
victory in November. Among the voters who are committed to their choice for Governor, the race is even with 26 percent selecting Mrs. Whitman and 26 percent saying they will Vote for Governor Florio. This means 48 percent of the voters are less committed or are undecided about whom to vote for.
