MT. HOLLY, N.J. — In the close-fought battle for the 3rd Congressional District, Republican incumbent Tom MacArthur is narrowly leading his opponent, Democrat Andy Kim, 47% to 45% with three weeks to go before voters head to the polls.
According to Stockton University’s polling unit? It’s a base battle.
Kim leads by 15-points in lean-blue suburban Burlington County.
MacArthur is ahead by 20 in deep red coastal Ocean County.
“While the most recent voter registration numbers show over 12,000 more Democrats than Republicans in the 3rd District, MacArthur and Kim have bases of support within the district broken down by county boundaries,” opined Michael W. Klein, interim executive director of Stockton’s Hughes Center. “In a race this close, whoever does a better job of turning out their voters will have a big advantage.”
