You could see this coming from the final polls: Independent Chris Daggett is only winning about 5% of the vote right now. Daggett reached almost 20% in some polls in the later stages of the campaign, but, even as voters were frustrated with Corzine and Christie, eventually they flocked to one of the major party contenders.
There are some questions as to whether ballot design hurt Daggett, but New Jersey also never struck me as the sort of rebellious state (I'm looking at you, Minnesota) that would elect an independent to high office. Plus, the American people tend to like independent candidates a lot more in theory than in practice.
