Obama – 45%
McCain – 39%

This represents a slip of 1% since polling was done in late February.

Key demo findings…

Obama has a double-digit lead among women, 46%-35%, and men split 44%-44%. McCain leads among Independent voters, 42%-40%.

Conclusion? New Jersey doesn’t seem as solidly blue as many think. Because any time a candidate has support under 50%, there’s always a shot for the challenger to gain ground once the real campaign begins.
