Poll: N.J. Race Still Tight
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 05:47 AM by cal04
The race between Democratic Senator Robert Menendez and Republican challenger Tom Kean Jr. remains virtually deadlocked with less than four weeks remaining before Election Day, a new poll shows.

The new Quinnipiac University poll shows Menendez favored by 49 percent of likely voters, compared to 45 percent of those polled favoring Kean. Six percent were undecided.

In the last Quinnipiac poll, released Sept. 20, Kean was favored by 48 percent of likely voters with Menendez at 45 percent.

Both polls have a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points, meaning the difference between the candidates is not clear-cut. Also, 18 percent of those polled said they could change their mind before Election Day.

1. Saw an anti-Menendez ad this morning....
"Corruption, corruption, corruption..."

I have seen no ads pointing out that Kean is another silver spoon legacy who has never done anything of note. This should not be close.

2. Strange that Quinnipiac is showing very few undecideds
Most polls have the undecideds in that race considerably higher, in fact more than twice as high. I'm wondering if Quinnipiac is pushing the leaners.

Regardless, looks like Menendez has the momentum and the upcoming debates should help him. He moved up in the polls after the summer debates.

3. Imus was trash-talking Kean today.
He said Kean was really a phony and that nobody should vote for him.
