Booker Appears to Have an Unbeatable Lead
Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Cory Booker continues to dominate the field, less than a week before the primary vote in New Jersey's U.S. Senate race to fill the seat of the late Frank Lautenberg.
A new Quinnipiac poll puts Booker at the top of the Democratic field with 54% of likely primary voters.
Congressman Frank Pallone comes in at a distant second, with 17%, followed by Congressman Rush Holt with 15% and State Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver with only 5%.
On the Republican side, Steve Lonegan leads private physician Alieta Eck 74-to-10 percent.
In a general election match-up between the two, the poll has Booker beating Lonegan 54-to-29 percent.
The primary is next Tuesday, August 13th.
The general election is set for Wednesday, October 16.
