Yankees favorites in NJ

New Jersey voters are pulling for the Yankees in the World Series by a 50-33 margin, with virtually every demographic group in the state cheering for the American League champs.

The Yankees are the choice of women, men, liberals, moderates, conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Hispanics, whites, young people, and old people. African Americans are the exception to the rule, going for the Phillies by a 37-32 margin.

Predictably there are large differences in support based on geography. 78% of people who live in the 856 area code right across the river are rooting for the Phillies as are 56% in the 609 area code that covers most of the rest of the southern part of the state. All of the area codes in the northern part of the state show between 62 and 67% support for the Yankees.

Tying the baseball preferences to the Governor's race Chris Christie leads Jon Corzine 46-36 among Yankees fans while the contest is tied at 40 with Phillies fans.
