A new telephone poll in the field pits state Sen. Barbara Buono against Newark Mayor Cory Booker in a head to head gubernatorial match-up.
A source who received the call said the poll asked several questions about issues affecting the state and asked respondents to rate potential gubernatorial candidates. The poll then matches Buono and Booker with no addiitonal information on either.
According to the source, respondents were then given a short bio of Buono before being asked to choose between Booker and Buono again.
Buono has all but declared her intent to run in the Democratic primary, but the conventional wisdom on the race says Booker clears the field should he decide to run. But the poll indicates that Buono may not back down even if Booker does jump into the race.
Buono did not return a call for comment on the poll.
