An internal poll from the campaign of U.S. Rep. John Adler (D-Cherry Hill) obtained by PolitickerNJ.com shows the incumbent holding a 17-point lead over Republican Jon Runyan, 51-34%, in a three-way 3rd Congressional District race. 

The poll reflects a matchup among Adler, GOP nominee Runyan, and Tea Party independent Peter DeStafano, who gets 12% of the vote in the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research poll.   

According to the poll conducted for the Adler campaign, 58% of voters approve of Adler's job performance, while giving Runyan just a 15% favorable rating.  

"Further," according to the poll, "the more voters hear about Runyan, the less they like him. Over the past three months, Runyan's negatives have risen by six percentage points while positive perceptions of him have not increased at all."  

Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research conducted the June 27th-30th survey of 505 likely November voters with a margin of error of approximately +/- 4.3 percentage points.  

Runyan campaign consultant Chris Russell said the internal poll released shows "desperation and can't be taken seriously given the recent track record of his pollster." 

"In October 2009 they (Greenberg Quinlan Rosner) released a poll that showed Jon Corzine beating Chris Christie by 3 points and third-party independent candidate Chris Daggett getting 14% of the vote –  a few weeks later Christie ended up winning by roughly 4 points and Daggett didn’t even get 6% of the vote," Russell said.

"And here was Christie — a tell-it-like-it-is, straight-talking, no-nonsense Jersey guy — telling about 60 members of the media what he really thought. 'Governor Branstad is a role model for me,' Christie gushed, referring to his 67-year-old counterpart from Iowa."
