This special topic poll sought the views of New Jersey residents on the November 1997 gubernatorial election. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of gubernatorial candidates Christie Todd Whitman (Republican), James McGreevey (Democrat), and Murray Sabrin (Libertarian). Those queried were asked to select the candidate who would best tackle the following issues: car insurance, public education, taxes, and the creation of new jobs. In addition, respondents were asked to compare their current property taxes to tax rates three years ago, and to compare their current financial situation to their situation four years ago. Background information on respondents includes age, race, ethnicity, sex, education, political party, voter registration and participation history, and family income.
