Poll finds New Jerseyans have lack of knowledge about lieutenant governor

    Kim Guadagno is New Jersey’s secretary of state and lieutenant governor, but only 56 percent of residents know who she is.

    A Monmouth University/NJ Press Media poll of 817 N.J. adults shows few know who Guadagno is or what role she plays in the state, though NJ.com reports the number is slightly higher when results are narrowed down to just registered voters. The poll has a +/- 3.4 percent margin of error.

    Guess that’s par for the course when you’re second in command to the outspoken Chris Christie.
