Whitman, campaigning Monday, sought to play down the importance of the surveys. "I never expect anything from the polls one way or another. I've never seen an accurate one in any race I've been in," she told reporters at a Columbus Day parade. McGreevey, elated by the findings, said the polls "confirm that working middle-class families want a change of direction." One in four New Jersey voters remain undecided, according to both surveys. A survey by the Bergen Record of voters a week ago in the key areas of Bergen and Passaic counties showed Whitman with a decisive lead over McGreevey, 51 percent to 34 percent.
