Poll: Rush Holt leads by eight

I’ve been waiting for the new Monmouth University Poll of Congressional District NJ12 (PDF) and it’s good news:

Congressman Rush Holt has slightly widened his lead in the race for New Jersey’s 12th Congressional District, according to the Monmouth University Poll. The incumbent Democrat garners support from 51% of likely voters in the district, which is identical to his support level from two weeks ago. However, Republican Scott Sipprelle’s support has slipped by 3 points to 43% in the current poll…

The Monmouth University Poll was conducted by telephone with 1042 likely voters from October 25 to 27, 2010. This sample has a margin of error of +/- 3.0 percent.

51% is enough to win but not enough to take anything for granted.  Volunteer this week to help our best Representative.

    don’t forget about me, Blue Jersey!  I’m beating my opponents brains out, just nobody knows it.  LoBiondo and his stooges, eehhh, staff are watching.  That might have to be satisfaction enough?

    He has ten times the money as Anna Little and only a 7 point lead.  The irony is that the GOP leaders opposed Anna Little because she didn’t have money.

    Pallone v. Little reminds me of the old children’s fable of the turtle and the rabbit.

    And we know who won that race.

                  I believe Rush Holt is in the lead because of how he runs things. Rush Holt is incumbent so he has more supporters due to how he does things. In the past he had his chance to make his ideas happen. Now with him running again, people have seen, tested, and liked his ideas. I also belive he is good because a leader is someone or thing that leads. They know he is determind, wise and has strong opinions. Kenneth Cody and Scott Sipprelle do not have these. They may be determinded but do not have strong opinions. People now know what he will do and how he will do it. This is one reason he is winning.

    Another reason may be because of his experience. He knows what the government will discuss and it’s outcomes. He can use this to his advantage. This may help our government more efficiently. Also he doesn’t need special training and he knows what to do. He has experience so he can jump right in the discussion to help the 12th district.
