But Quinnipiac finds the race has narrowed with a little more than six weeks to go before election day:
A new Quinnipiac poll in New Jersey finds Cory Booker (D) leading Steve Lonegan by 12 points in the U.S. Senate race among likely voters, 53% to 41%.
Said pollster Maurice Carroll: "Maybe that 'show horse vs. work horse' charge from Lonegan is having an impact. While we can't make a direct comparison between registered voters and likely voters, Booker did have a 54% to 29% registered voter lead over Lonegan in Quinnipiac's August 7 pre-primary survey."
Booker is still over 50% in the race, which means Lonegan has an uphill battle to win.
But there have been some negative stories about Booker out in the press lately, which could be contributing to some support going to Lonegan.
In the end, I think Booker still wins the race,
But it will be interesting to see if he wins in a double digit blowout or if Lonegan can close the gap even more and make it a real race.
