Not that there aren't tons of anomalies for the democrats on countless issues, but this one is so obvious and it is easily verifiable. We have heard the steady gloat fest from the democrats saying that the republican party is dead and that they are an only a regional party. Simply look at the posts from the democrats on this forum over the last few months and it is impossible to miss the trend. They run their mouths about how the republicans can only win in the south and thats it and yada, yada, yada. Now we have news on the 2009 Governorâs Race in New Jersey and the republican candidate is not only ahead, but ahead by a lot over the incumbent governor. How could a party that can only win in the south be leading by a large margin in a north eastern state. It just doesn't make sense democrats. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/pub.../new_jersey/election_2009_new_jersey_governor "Fresh from his primary victory over Steve Lonegan, Republican Chris Christie enjoys a double-digit lead over Democrat Jon Corzine in the New Jersey Governorâs race. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state shows Christie with 51% of the vote while Corzine is supported by 38%. Last month, before the primary, it was Christie with 47% of the vote and Corzine with 38%. The slight increase in support for Christie may reflect a temporary bounce from his primary victory. "
