Despite the Odds, #NJSen Might Be a Single Digit Race

Despite the Odds, #NJSen Might Be a Single Digit Race

By Alyssa Lafage | The Save Jersey Blog

booker bellJeff Bell has run a solid, issues-based campaign that, until recently, received little to no meaningful coverage from the mainstream press. 

As you well know Save Jerseyans, they only pay attention when the script fits their narrative.

But despite their disinterest in reporting on Bell’s ideas, like how to reign in government spending or how to restore the strength of the U.S. Dollar, a recent Stockton poll shows that Bell has moved to within single digits of social media darling Cory Booker (D-Twitter):

“Incumbent U.S. Sen. Cory Booker leads Republican challenger Jeff Bell by 9 percentage points in New Jersey’s U.S. Senate race, according to a poll of likely New Jersey voters released today by the Stockton Polling Institute.

Booker, a Democrat, leads by 48 percent to 39 percent for Bell, when voters who lean toward one candidate or the other are included. Twelve percent are unsure or not expressing a choice.

The poll results show a tightening of the race since a Stockton Poll released on Sept. 10 found Booker with a 13-point lead.”

Despite a substantial lead for Booker in a Monmouth Poll from last week, a Quinnipiac Poll released earlier this month showed Bell trailing behind Booker by just 39-34% among voters whose mind is made up. It also showed that many voters are still undecided.

This is nothing to get too excited about at this point, however, things could swing dramatically in favor of either candidate after October 25th. That is when the Bell and Booker will finally face each other in a televised debate organized by the League of Women Voters, WPVI-TV Philadelphia and WABC-TV NY.

  1. Booker is a strong supporter of the “Affordable” Care Act which just made my insurance company end my policy. The new policy with higher deductibles costs $500 per MONTH more. Booker has strong Hollywood support but has done zero for Newark or NJ. I expect Bell to win a surprise upset.

  2. I think I just figured this out. High paid consultants paid by establishment Republicans are pretending that this race is close so that when Jeff Bell loses, they can blame it on not getting enough money, or on conservatives for not being team players. Whatever their excuses for losing, these Republican establishment campaign “experts” will not accept any responsibility and will be put in charge of more campaigns and get more money next year. Nice work if you can get it.

  3. A vote 4 Booker means more welfare more debt and is a vote 4 the idiot of a president we have now turning us into a 3 rd world country!

  4. I live in this scumbag State ( NJ ) I expect nothing less then the retarded constituents to vote for more Booker!!! The dummies in this State are just too stupid to vote for accountability. They want everything free.
