Booker Holds Commanding Lead in Special Election Poll

Newark Mayor Cory Booker appears headed for the Senate. With only five weeks left before the primary in New Jersey's special election, Booker has a commanding lead over his rival Democrats, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday. He's also a heavy favorite to win the October general election in the Democratic-leaning state.

The Quinnipiac survey shows Booker leading the four-way Democratic field with 52 percent. Rep. Frank Pallone, the second-place finisher, is 42 points behind at 10 percent. Rep. Rush Holt garners 8 percent of the primary vote, while Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver receives 3 percent.

Former Bogota Mayor and likely Republican nominee Steve Lonegan, who said last week that he'd rather face Booker than Pallone in October, might want to be careful what he wishes for: He trails Booker by 23 points, 53 percent to 30 percent, in the general election, but the Republican is statistically tied in individual match-ups with the other three Democrats.

 

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,068 registered voters between from July 2-7, for a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points. The subsample of 400 Democrats has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.9 percentage points.
