TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A majority of New Jersey voters
appear willing to wait for a tax cut.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows 52 percent of
respondents agree with the Democrats' decision to wait-and-see if the state can

Democrats say they'll sign off only if revenue collections meet Christie's
targets. They've fallen short so far.
The telephone survey of 1,405 registered voters was taken Oct. 10-14 and has
a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
