Q Poll: Booker winning primary and election. Lonegan has large lead in GOP primary

The good news for Congressman Frank Pallone is that he is no longer running last in the independent polls for the Democratic nomination to replace the late Senator Frank Lautenberg in Washington.  The bad news; he’s losing to Newark Mayor Cory Booker by 42 points in the Quinnipiac Poll released this morning.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1068 registered New Jersey voters from July 2-7.   The did not survey likely voters.

Booker leads the Democratic field with 52%.  Pallone has 10%, Congressman Rush Holt 8%, and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver has 3%.

In the Republican primary, former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan leads Dr. Alieta Eck 62%-5% is 28% undecided.

Dr. Eck is virtually unknown, with 91% saying they haven’t heard enough about her to form an opinion.

In the October 16 special election, Booker is leading Lonegan 53%-30%.

Pallone beat Lonegan 38%-34%. Holt beats Lonegan 37%-36%.  Lonegan beats Oliver 37%-35%.

  1. Joe Centonzi said at 2:27 pm on July 9th, 2013:

    The fact that 28% of the Republican electorate cannot commit to voting for Lonegan is a sad testimony to how unpopular he is with his own base – and not because he’s too “extreme,” as some have contended, but because he’s a self-aggrandizing douchebag who has burned too many bridges to count over the past 20 years.

    Lonegan has neither character nor integrity and the absence of these critical attributes will come to haunt him in October when Booker steamrollers over him to become Senator-for-Life from the Peoples’ Socialist Democratic Republik of Nueva Yersey.

    So Quinnipiac does a poll of Registered and not LIKELY voters for a SPECIAL election, not a November General election? The word that comes to my mind about this poll is USELESS!

    Calm yourself, Mr. Santana. When the pedal hits the metal in October you will see that even FEWER likely voters will have pulled the lever for the man whose name will go down in Garden State history as “Steve Lose-again.”

    Mayor Lonegan has nothing to fear from Eck. He’ll get lots of money from supporters of Americans For Prosperity, and Patriots like Joe The Plumber, Colonel Manly Rash, Phyllis Schlafly and Ron Paul will come to New Jersey to raise money for him like they did four years ago. Then the political world will turn upside down when Mayor Lonegan beats Booker in October.

  5. Just thinking about this a little more said at 10:54 am on July 12th, 2013:

    Isn’t it interesting that Frank Pallone fought years for Black Democrats to get them free government cheese, but they desert Phony Pallone for a Black Brother.
