We've had lots of polling in the New Jersey governor's race lately, but not much movement. Here's the latest pollster.com composite, which shows Republican Chris Christie maintaining a solid lead over Gov. Jon Corzine:

There's been a line of thinking about this race that says Corzine's deficit in the polls isn't a big deal. This is New Jersey, where Republicans always get their hopes up, only to have Democrats rally to victory. Corzine has millions of dollars to spend. Christie's image as a corruption buster and a moderate isn't go to last.

Maybe that line of thinking still will be proven correct. But, if I were Corzine, I'd be getting nervous.
