A new poll finds the Democrat running for Governor in New Jersey buries Republican Kim Guadagno by double digits. The Quinnipiac University poll survey shows Phil Murphy beating the current Lieutenant Governor 55-to-26 percent in the upcoming Governor's race. The study shows the blue wave sweeping across the ballot, with 57-percent of New Jersey voters saying they want Democrats rather than Republicans to control the state legislature.
Taxes appears to be the most important issue in their vote, and only 23-percent believe Guadagno's pledge that she will step down after one term if she does not lower property taxes. Only 39-percent trust Murphy's pledge to increase education funding by imposing a millionaires' tax, with no tax hike on the middle class. The winner will succeed term-limited Republican Governor Chris Christie this November.
