Booker Breaks Ahead In The Polls - My9 New Jersey

Booker Breaks Ahead In The Polls

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

A new poll shows Mayor Cory Booker is way ahead in the New Jersey Special Senate Election, leading Lonegan by 35 points with 64% to 29%. However, the Mayor took a break from campaigning today and was in his hometown to commemorate those who were lost on 9/11.

Political Expert and Political Science Professor at Monmouth University Alan Steinberg chimed in on the latest poll numbers saying, “If the numbers are accurate, the election is over.  However, the Lonegan camp is debunking this poll and the methodology. If that poll shows that Booker has a double-digit lead towards the end of September and the election being on October 16th, the election is pretty much over.  But if Lonegan has somehow narrowed that gap to a single digit it is a competitive race.”

But not everyone is in favor of Booker’s leadership role in Newark and many are still skeptical of his financial documents that were released.  Steinberg said, “Booker has had troubles with outside income and mistakes he made filing and also the crime wave that took place in Newark over a week were not helpful to him.”  

And Lonegan can’t be ruled out just yet because he has a lot of loyal voters. Steinberg said, “Lonegan supporters are the kind of people that would vote through a snow storm in January.  Booker supporters are not as motivated so that will tend to help Lonegan.”

    The lake is called Lake Hopatcong but some would call it Lake "Hopat-conda"! Recently, there was a fifteen-foot anaconda spotted in the lake by local resident Tony Colantonio. According to Colantonio, the snake was actually harassing him while he was swimming in the lake so he proceeded to sprint out with no harm done."It was straight across, right where the boat is but a little further back. And I just got out of the water and just took off like a bandit!" He said.
