Raleigh, N.C. – PPP's newest New Jersey poll finds Cory Booker leading the pack for Democratic Senatorial Candidate in 2014. In a hypothetical head-to-head, Booker leads the race with a 23 point spread over Republican Lieutenant Governor, Kim Guadagno. That lead narrows to15 points when current NJ Senator Frank Lautenberg is pitted against her. The results for Guadagno versus Congressmen Rob Andrews and Frank Pallone are well within the margin of error at 34-35 and 32-32 respectively.
Equally promising for Booker is how voters responded when asked if Frank Lautenberg should retire. 45% said he should retire, compared to 36% saying he should run for reelection. Based on the results, it looks like New Jersey Democrats are ready for a fresher face in the Senate, and would prefer Booker.
