Zogby: LoBiondo up 57-20; Andrews leads 63-22%

A Richard Stockton College/Zogby Poll shows U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo and U.S. Rep. Robert Andrews holding substantial leads over their respective challengers in the 2nd and 1st congressional districts.

Commissioned by the William J. Hughes Center for Public Policy, the poll shows LoBiondo with the support of 57 percent of likely voters against Democratic challenger Gary Stein, who has 20 percent of the vote. LoBiondo is down two percentage points from the September 21-23 poll and Stein is down five percentage points from the same poll. Undecided voters actually increased over the month from 13 percent to 20 percent.

 In the 1st Congressional District, Andrews has a similar lead in his district race, where he polls at 63 percent to 22 percent over his Republican challenger Dale Glading. According to the poll, both Andrews and Glading saw their numbers move from the September poll where Andrews went from 59 percent to 63 percent and Glading went from 24 percent to 22 percent.  

As reported last week, the Zogby poll shows Third Congressional District GOP challenger Jon Runyan leading U.S. Rep. John Adler (D-Cherry Hill) by three points, 40 percent to 37 percent. 

“Despite the potential upheaval in elections across the country, South Jersey’s three congressional districts are actually following traditional voting patterns. Longtime incumbents, Congressman LoBiondo and Andrews, look likely to be returned to Congress by voters in what are considered safe districts. First term Congressman John Adler, in a traditionally Republican district, finds himself in a toss-up race as he tries for his second term in the House of Representatives,” explained Sharon Schulman, executive director of the William J. Hughes Center for Public Policy at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. 

In all three congressional districts, President Barack Obama’s favorability rating is higher than it is reported nationally. "In District 1, Obama’s favorables are up seven percentage points from 62 percent to 69 percent. In the September poll, Obama’s favorable were 55 percent in both districts two and three. In the latest poll, Obama’s favorable have slipped slightly to 53 percent in the second district and 52 percent in the third district.

"Governor Chris Christie’s favorability ratings remain essentially unchanged from the September poll to the October poll in each of the congressional districts. Christie went from 46 percent to 45 percent favorable in the first district and from 54 percent to 52 percent in the second district. In the third district, Christie did show improvement from 54 percent to 59 percent over the course of the month."

Quote of the day

“The new agenda is charter schools. It’s a profit-making business. $500 million will not be in our hands. The school board is an advisory board. We are not going to tell the governor to unleash the dollars. Don’t be fooled. It’s not abracadabra. It’s politics.” - Paterson Mayor Jeff Jones
