Cory Booker Has Massive Lead With One Month To Go
With just over a month until the Special Election to fill the seat once held by Frank Lautenberg, Cory Booker has a clearly insurmountable lead in the polls:
With a month to go in New Jersey’s Senate special election, Newark Mayor Cory Booker has pulled out to a 35-point lead, according to a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released Wednesday.
Booker took 64 percent, with 29 percent supporting Republican Steve Lonegan and 6 percent undecided. The special to replace the late Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J., will be held Oct. 16.
Lonegan is hoping for a boost on Friday when Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., will endorse him at an afternoon rally in Clark, N.J. But the state’s political dynamics and Booker’s personal popularity makes a Republican win here difficult.
“Booker appears to be building an insurmountable lead,” Rutgers-Eagleton Poll director David Redlawsk said.
To say the least.
