  • New Jersey Senate Special Election Poll: Booker cruising to victory

    Newark Mayor Cory Booker appears headed for a sizable victory tomorrow in New Jersey’s Special Election to fill the Senate seat of the late Frank Lautenberg. Booker’s impending victory is fueled by leads of 20% or more among Moderate voters and voters in the New York and Philadelphia media markets.

Because the jury is skeptical at the outset that a change of representation in the Senate is needed.
