Monmouth Univeristy Poll: Pallone Leads Little 53%-41%

A Monmouth University Poll released today gives Congressman Frank Pallone a 53%-41% lead over Highlands Mayor Anna Little in the race for the NJ-6 congressional seat.  6% of likely voters are undecided according to the poll.

“A 12 point lead may look comfortable, but not when you consider the fact that Pallone regularly wins reelection by more than 30 points,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. “District demographics are the key to this race. Little does well in independent-minded parts of the district. The question is whether it will be enough to overcome the built-in Democratic advantage here.”

Pallone and Little are basically tied 49% to 47% in the Monmouth County half of the district, but Pallone has a sizable 58% to 33% lead in the other half, which includes urban strongholds in Middlesex and Union counties.

Little actually leads by 51% to 38% among self-identified independent voters in this district, but, so far, it is not enough to overcome the Democrats more than 2-to-1 registration edge over Republicans in New Jersey’s 6th.

Congressman Frank Pallone’s job performance rating among likely voters in his district stands at 46% approve to 36% disapprove. He also garners personal ratings of 48% favorable to 32% unfavorable.

By comparison, 33% of voters give Little a favorable rating and 22% are unfavorable, with nearly half

(45%) offering no opinion on the Highlands Borough Mayor.

    Monmouth is the bigger part of the district.

    Also, I love it that the Republican establishment (I’m talking about DC), hasn’t really helped (as far as I can tell).

    When Republicans ignore Anna Little, Anna Little kicks ass in the election.

    I can’t wait until election night!

    Found the split of Dems/Repub/Ind interesting. 53%/23%/24%. Curious what the polls would have shown if it was split evenly.

    keep staying in denial,that’s very helpful.. her mistakes and lib views notwithstanding, those who worked themselves to death in ’93 for Whitman to get rid of Florio, know what a wild and crazy ride it was, and the thrill of squeaking it out that night, in Princeton, where we got it done at the end, and without a recount!- (and, it was thanks to Monmouth, by the way)….hey,. where’s Pallone’s HQ gonna be, Rick?.. we need to know where to send the “sympathy” card!..( which, to us, will be a “congratulations” card to the country!!-can’t wait!)
