Newark Mayor Cory Booker maintained his lead over U.S. Senate challenger Steve Lonegan in the latest Quinnipiac University Poll, and it showed the news regarding his social media exchanges with a stripper have not done much damage.
A 31-point lead among women overcomes his deficit among men, today’s poll showed. The Democrat holds a 53 – 41 percent likely voter lead over former Bogota Mayor Lonegan, the Republican.
There is a huge gender gap as women back Booker 62 – 31 percent, while men back Lonegan 51 – 44 percent.
One week before the special election, 5 percent of New Jersey likely voters remain undecided and 6 percent who name a candidate say there is a “good chance” they will change their mind in the next seven days, the poll found.
“It’s still not the predicted blow-out, but with a week to go, Newark Mayor Cory Booker hangs on to a nice, if not exactly comfortable, double-digit lead,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “And despite the Stripper-Twitter Affair, Booker has a 2-1 lead among women, while men back Lonegan.”
From October 5 – 7, Quinnipiac University surveyed 899 New Jersey likely voters in the special U.S. Senate election, with a margin of error of +/- 3.3 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.
